View Menu

The View menu contains commands to change the look and behavior of the workspace. It is accessed by clicking View on the Menu bar.

Fit Page (CTRL+9): Fits the entire page to the available display area.

Fit Width (CTRL+0): Fits the width of the page to the display area.

Actual Size (CTRL+8): Displays the page at 100% or the true size of the page.

  Single Page Mode (CTRL+4): Fits individual pages to the current workspace window.

  Continuous Mode (CTRL+5): Shows all pages in a single column.

  Side-by-Side (CTRL+6): Shows two pages side-by-side per window with the even page on the right and the odd page on the left. If Show Cover Page in Side-by-Side is enabled, the first page will be shown alone and the rest will exhibit this behavior.

  Continuous Side-by-Side (CTRL+7): Shows all pages in the side-by-side mode in one continuous window. If Show Cover Page in Side-by-Side is enabled, the first page will be shown alone and the rest will exhibit this behavior.

Show Cover Page in Side-by-Side: When enabled, causes the first page of a multi-page PDF to be shown on its own when one of the side-by-side displays is selected.

Rotate View Menu

 Rotate Clockwise (SHIFT+ALT+PLUS): Rotates the page clockwise in 90° increments.

 Rotate Counterclockwise (SHIFT+ALT+MINUS): Rotates the page counterclockwise in 90° increments.

 Split Vertical (CTRL+2): Engages MultiView™ and divides the workspace into two vertically oriented splits.

 Split Horizontal (CTRL+H): Engages MultiView™ and divides the workspace into two horizontally oriented splits.

Toggle (CTRL+I): Toggles between vertical and horizontal orientation for the current split.

Switch (CTRL+1): Puts the active document tab in the last active split and removes it from the current split.

Balance (SHIFT+F12): Sets all splits to equal size.

 Unsplit: Eliminates the current split.

Synchronize Document: When enabled, synchronizes the viewing windows when displaying PDFs in side-by-side Split View mode or in a detached window by page index, thus viewing page 1 on document A will cause document B to automatically also view page 1.

Synchronize Page: When enabled, synchronizes the viewing windows when displaying PDFs in side-by-side Split View mode or in a detached window without regard to page index, allowing the user to synchronize different pages across documents or different pages in the same multi-page document.

Rulers: Toggles the rulers on and off. Rulers appears along the top and left edges of the workspace. Right-click on either ruler to choose to measure in Inches, Centimeters, Millimeters, Points, or Picas.

Full-Screen Crosshair: When enabled, the cursor is replaced with full-screen crosshairs in the main workspace, drawing vertical and horizontal lines across the document that meet at the mouse pointer. The color of the crosshairs is the same as the Snap Color defined in the Grid & Snap Preferences.

Show Grid (SHIFT+F9): When enabled, a visible grid is overlayed on PDFs in the main workspace. Grid spacing is configured through the Grid & Snap Preferences.

Snap to Grid (CTRL+SHIFT+F9): When enabled, any points used to define a markup line are forced to align with the grid (even if the grid is not currently visible). The grid spacing is configured through the Grid & Snap Preferences.

Snap to Content (CTRL+SHIFT+F10): When enabled, markups automatically snap to the underlying PDF vector content. Snap to Content does not snap to text or images in the PDF, only vector images such as lines and shapes. The exact elements that are snapped to are set in the Grid & Snap Preferences.

Snap to Markup (CTRL+SHIFT+F11): When enabled, markups automatically snaps to other markups in the PDF. Two related behaviors will occur: the cursor will snap to points on other markups (similar to how Snap to Content snaps to points in the PDF content) and Revu will also show—and the cursor will snap to—guidelines that are based on lines in nearby markups. The exact elements that are snapped to are set in the Grid & Snap Preferences.

Dimmer: The Dimmer menu contains tools to control dimmer effects on the content layer of the PDF in order to better see annotations.

Dim Content (CTRL+F5): Toggles the dimmer effect on or off.

0-100%: Set the level of dimming as a percentage. The lower the percentage, the less intense the underlying PDF will appear compared to the annotations.

Disable Line Weights: When disabled, Revu uses the line weights defined in the PDF when showing documents in the workspace. When enabled, a method will be used to determine an optimal line thickness based on the screen resolution and zoom factor of the workspace.
