The ability to further distinguish your markups by creating custom lines styles was added in Revu 10. A custom line style can contain multiple lines, text and vector components. Revu comes pre-loaded with a Standard line set, but you can create your own new styles or sets of styles. Plus, sets of line styles can be shared with other users after they are created. Keep in mind, custom line types can be applied to Line line, Ellipse circle, Polyline polyline, Rectangle rectangle, Polygon polygon and Cloud cloud markups.
