The Panel interface

In Revu for Mac 1.0, you would first have to open the panels nub located to the left, right and bottom sides of the interface. From there, you could access various tabs, including Properties, Studio and more.

In 2.0, each of these tabs is now a dedicated panel. So rather than click on a panel and then on a tab to access certain functions, you can now access the same functions with a single click on a panel icon.

You can use keyboard shortcuts for faster access, and even customize your shortcuts.

The Properties toolbar

In some cases, however, you won’t need to use the panels at all. The new Properties toolbar allows you to change most properties of a selected markup without opening the Properties panel. This toolbar will also display useful information about the open PDF, Studio Project or Studio Session if a markup is not selected.

Rearranging panels

If you want to customize Revu to better suit your workflow, you can click and drag a panel icon to any of the empty bars at the bottom, left or right side of the Revu window; or, release the panel away from the bars to create a floating panel separate from the Revu window.

See the Revu Help Manual for the complete reference on panels.
