Syncing in Bluebeam® Revu® to Work in Studio Projects without an Internet Connection New

Summary

You can work with Studio Project files in Revu even without an Internet connection. You can designate the files that you will need to access while you’re away, and then any edits to these will be synced to your Project once you reconnect.

Preparing to work offline

  1. Open the Studio  panel and open your Studio Project.
  2. To designate the files you want to work with, hover over a file or folder and click the Set to Sync  button on the right. The icon will become solid green  to indicate that the file or folder is ready to sync.
    If a folder is set to sync, all of the subfolders and the files it contains will sync as well.
  3. Right-click the top-level Project folder and click Sync  to create locally cached copies of the files.
  4. Check out the files you will need while working offline. This locks the files so no one else can make changes to them. Right-click on the file and click Check Out . When you check out a file, it is added to the Pending Changes section at the bottom of the Studio panel.
  5. To manually begin working offline, click the Connected  button at the top of the Studio pane. A dialogue box appears confirming that you would like to work offline. Click OK. Alternatively, Revu will automatically switch to offline mode once the Internet connection is lost. 

Now you can markup and work with the files you have synced without an Internet connection. Files that have not been marked as Set to Sync  are not available when working offline. 

Uploading your changes when you are back online

While working offline, edit and save the document the same way you normally would.

Don't use the 'Save As' or 'Export' options, as this creates a new version of the document and any changes will not be synced with the version in the Project.

Once you have an Internet connection, you can sync your files to the Studio Project.

  1. Click the Offline  button at the top-right of the Studio panel. 
  2. Right-click on the documents in the Pending Changes list and click Check In .
  3. The Check In dialogue box opens. Add any desired comments to the comments box and then click Check In
