How to access Studio Sessions for the web

After you sign into Bluebeam Cloud with your Bluebeam ID (BBID), select Studio Sessions on the left sidebar. Any Studio Session you’ve created or have been invited to will appear on this page. If you don’t have an active Session, the option for Studio Sessions won’t appear.

You must use Revu 21 to create or manage your Sessions. You need a Core or Complete subscription plan to host a Session. Session hosts can invite unpaid collaborators to Sessions.

How to work in a Session

When you open a Session, you start on the first page of your drawing set. To navigate the files within a Session, select the page label at the top left corner. To navigate the pages within a document, use the navigation bar at the bottom.

You have access to the markup tools currently available in Bluebeam Cloud except RFI and Punch. Several Revu markups are partially supported or unsupported in Bluebeam Cloud.

To view markup data, statuses, and replies, select Comments and Shapes.

By default, comments refer to text-based markups (e.g. text boxes and callouts), while shapes refer to all other markups.

Custom statuses are available in Sessions for the web. You or another collaborator must set a custom status in Revu before the custom status becomes available in Bluebeam Cloud.

Best Practices

File Management

Large files may slow performance within Sessions for the web. We recommend limiting the page number and complexity of the files in the Session.

Access Sessions from Revu or Bluebeam Cloud

If you attempt to access a Session from both Revu and Bluebeam Cloud, you’ll be removed from the initial point of access. For example, if you join a Session on the web while already in the Session in Revu, you’ll be removed from the Session in Revu.


Bluebeam Cloud

Bluebeam Cloud now allows you to access Studio Sessions. Here’s how to get started.
