My computer seems to perform slowly after installing Revu

Applies to:

  • Revu 21 & below

As long as the system prerequisites are met and your system resources are not overwhelmed, performance of Bluebeam Revu should not cause more system stress than most other traditional desktop applications. While Revu is compatible with most software and computer configurations, it’s impossible to account for all of the systems and all applications that it may affect.

Resource consumption is mainly based on what files are loaded into Bluebeam Revu. PDF files with a lot of text, image, and vector data can definitely affect performance when trying to navigate quickly or perform intense rendering processes.

If your computer is running noticeably slower even when Revu is closed, and you are quite certain this only occurred immediately after it was installed, you may want to try repairing your Microsoft .NET Framework. Bluebeam software relies heavily on the basic structure of this application for many of its features. In instances where the correct .NET version wasn’t previously installed, repairing this application via the Windows Add/Remove Programs tool may help improve your performance.
