About transferring markups

There may be situations when you’d like to transfer markups from one document to another. With Revu, you can do this in several ways:

  • From the Markups List, using the Export Markups and Import tools.
  • Copying markups from the original document, then pasting-in-place on the destination document.
  • Using Batch Slip Sheet (available in Revu eXtreme only).

In this article, we’ll explain how to transfer markups using the Markups List and paste-in-place methods. To learn more about Batch Slip Sheet, visit the Revu Help Guide.

Using the Markups List to export and import markups

The Markups List (ALT+L) stores information about your markups, such as their exact location on a page. You can export this information with the Export Markups and Import tools.

To ensure your markups transfer properly, please confirm the following:

  • The original document and destination document have the same dimensions.
    Markups from an 8″ x 11″ document won’t import properly to a 32″ x 40″ document.

  • Page numbers on the original document match those on the destination document.
    For example, if you have a cloud markup on Page 2 of the original document, it will appear on Page 2 of the destination document.

First, export your markups from the original document.

  1. Open the original document.
  2. Go to the Markups List (ALT+L).
  3. Select Markups List > Markups > Export Markups (Ctrl+F2).
    In Revu 2017, select Export > Export Markups (Ctrl+F2).
  4. Save the Bluebeam Annotations (.bax) file.

Then, import your markups to the destination document.

  1. Open the destination document.
  2. Go to the Markups List  (ALT+L).
  3. Select Markups List > Markups > Import (Ctrl+F3).
    In Revu 2017, select Import .
  4. Open the Bluebeam Annotations (.bax) file that you saved in the previous steps.

Your imported markups will appear on the document.


Copy and Paste-in-place

An alternative method is to transfer your markups with paste-in-place.

This method is only effective for documents with very few pages, since you can only paste markups one page at a time.

First, copy your markups.

  1. Open the original document.
  2. Go to the Markups List and select all markups.
    You can also select markups directly from the document.
  3. Copy all markups by pressing CTRL+C.

Then, paste your markups to the new document.

  1. Open the destination document.
  2. Paste all markups in place by pressing CTRL+SHIFT+V.

All markups will appear in their correct locations on the document.
