The Window Preferences contain settings for the control of Revu on tablet computers, the presentation of documents, and for the appearance and control of WebTabs. Select Window from the Preferences dialog box to view or modify these preferences.
To open the Preferences dialog box:
- Go to Revu > Preferences or press
Note: Some tablet preferences are hardware-dependent. Depending on your device, some of the preferences below might be unavailable or not shown.
Enable Tablet Zoom Feature: When enabled, the zoom/pan tool appears when the mouse or pen is double-clicked or double-tapped. This tool makes it easier to zoom and pan a PDF using just the stylus. Click the stylus anywhere within the light-blue area and drag up to zoom in or drag down to zoom out. Click anywhere outside the light-blue area to pan. This tool looks like:
Enable Text Highlighting: When enabled, highlighting text works similarly to text selection, for more controlled text highlighting. Hold CTRL to override this behavior and use the highlighter more like a pen.
Pen Commitment Interval: Sets the number of milliseconds (delay) prior to markups being applied to the document. For example, when using the Pen markup tool, a lower number will result in a series of letters applied to a document separately, while a higher number will result in a series of letters grouped together as one annotation.
Enable Right-Click Lasso when Inking: When enabled, if the mouse is right-clicked when the inking markups (pen & highlighter) are used, the lasso tool will be selected. Sometimes a tablet computer stylus has a button enabled to emulate the right-click mouse behavior. This can interfere with using the pen annotation within Revu if one of the buttons on the stylus is accidentally pressed. Disable this setting to prevent the pen and highlighter annotations from switching to the lasso tool if there is a right-click event.
Scale Eraser With Zoom: When enabled, the eraser automatically scales when zooming in or out on a drawing.
Enable Pressure Sensitivity: When enabled, Revu will automatically detect the amount of pressure being applied while placing Pen or Highlight markups on a tablet PC and react accordingly. For example, pushing down firmer with the stylus generates a thicker line.
Auto Recognize Text: When enabled, Revu recognizes text when using the pen tool and adds that text in the comment field.
Sensitivity: Determines the pressure sensitivity when using the pen and highlight annotations on a tablet PC with a tablet pointing device. Pushing down firmer with the stylus generates a thicker line.
Direction: When a Page Transition is used, determines the direction of the transition.
Use GPU Acceleration: When enabled, GPU acceleration is utilized on WebTabs. Enabling or disabling this option might address rendering issues with WebTabs.
Always Switch to New WebTabs upon Creation: When enabled, Revu switches to new WebTabs when they are created.
Open PDF Hyperlinks in WebTabs: When enabled, Revu opens PDF hyperlinks in a new WebTab. Otherwise, links are opened in the default web browser.
Open web PDFs in Split-View: When enabled, clicking a hyperlink in a PDF causes Revu to split the main workspace so the WebTab and the PDF are both shown.
Show Script Errors: When enabled, scripting errors encountered are shown in a popup window.
Use Standardized Favorites: When enabled, Revu will use the Standard Favorites found in the location specified in the corresponding field.
Edit Web Favorites; Click to manage your favorites.
