This installment of the Customizing Bluebeam Revu 2019 series focuses on the Toolbars located below the Menu Bar and to the left and right sides of the Main Workspace, as well as the Properties toolbar. Toolbars are essentially groups of icons in the Revu interface representing various functions (including markups, measurements, form fields etc.), or tools. Unlike Panels, tools are more specific functions that do not require a special interface.
Both toolbar and panel icons are found in toolstrips. A toolstrip refers to the empty gray bars to the left, right or top of the interface where toolbar or panel icons appear.
- A toolbar will always have a string of dots (……) near its top or left side called a handle.
- After clicking on a tool, the Properties Toolbar often becomes active.
You can move any toolbar to any toolstrip in the interface. To move a toolbar, click and drag on the toolbar’s handle (……), then release over a toolstrip.
Adding and hiding toolbars
Toolbars may be added to or hidden from the interface by going to Tools > Toolbars.
To add a toolbar, click on any toolbar name that does not have a checkmark next to it.
To remove a toolbar, click on any toolbar name with a checkmark next to it.
Adding, removing or moving tools
Tools from any toolbar can be added, removed and even rearranged as you see fit from the Customizing Toolbars dialog box, found under Tools > Toolbars > Customize…
If you want to learn more about this dialog box, please read Tools and Toolbars in the Revu Help.
Saving toolbar arrangements
Any arrangement of toolbars and panels can be saved to a Profile.
To save your panel and tab arrangement to your active profile, go to Revu > Profiles > Save Profile.
To edit or delete profiles, go to Revu > Profiles > Manage Profiles.
The Properties toolbar resides along the top of the interface and, while not customizable, automatically changes to display information that is relevant to the tool you are currently using. With the editable properties of your tools always available on screen, the Properties toolbar saves valuable time. You can always hide the Properties toolbar by clicking Tools > Toolbars > Properties Toolbar.
