Creating Grouped Markups

Grouping markups in Revu is useful for combining multiple markups that you use often. Follow these steps to create your own markups:

Step 1: Draw using markup tools

Draw the elements for your custom markup with the tools in Revu for Mac. You can use Circles Circle IconRectangles Rectangle IconLines Lines Icon or any other markup.

Step 2: Select and Group the elements

Now select all elements. There are a number of ways to select multiple elements.

  • Hold down the Shift key and select elements one at a time.
  • Use the Select Select Arrow Icon (V) tool to draw a rectangle around all of the elements.
  • Use the Lasso Revu Lasso Icon (Shift+O) tool to select elements that cross an irregularly-shaped area.
  • Select multiple items from the Markups List Markups List Icon (Alt+L).

Once all elements are selected, you are ready to group them. Right-click on one of the elements, and select Group (Ctrl+G) from the dropdown menu. The blue boundary lines and handles for each element change into a single boundary line and set of handles after they are grouped.

You can also save a grouped markup and add it to your Tool Chest Revu Tool Chest Icon for easy access.

Renaming Your Grouped Markups

Once grouped, they will show up as “Group” in the Subject column of Markups List Markups List Icon. This can be confusing if you’ve grouped multiple markups and need to distinguish them from each other in the markups list. You can rename a grouped markup by following these steps:

  1. Go into the Markups List Markups List Icon and locate the grouped markup you want to rename.
  2. Double-click on its default subject name (in the Subject column). The grouped markup will also highlight on the page when you click.
  3. Type the desired Subject name in the Markups List Markups List Icon and press the Enter key.

Now your grouped markup will have a custom name.

Saving Your Markups

Any markup or group of markups can be saved in the Tool Chest Revu Tool Chest Icon (Alt+X) and reused. You’ll see your newly created symbol in the Recent Tools section of the Tool Chest Revu Tool Chest Icon. Click the symbol and drag it into the My Tools section, or any of your other tool sets. Now the symbol is available for use at any time.

If you want to save a markup and have it show up with your custom Subject in the Markups List every time, make sure to rename it before proceeding. Otherwise, it will show up as “Group” in the Markups List Markups List Icon.
