Advanced: For users who need a broad range of advanced markup features and precise control over markups and measurements and their properties.
Construction: For construction professionals who work with large drawing sets and smart documents and need robust markup, editing, and collaboration tools.
Design Review: For users who need in interface tailored for design review and collaboration with customizable tool sets that contain essential features for drawing navigation, markup and measurement.
Office: For users who review and proofread documents and need the most frequently used markup and editing tools with a simplified interface.
Oil & Gas: For users working with piping & instrumental designs (P&IDs) and process flow diagrams (PFDs) who need specialized tool sets geared toward those tasks.
Punch: For users completing a punch process.
Simple: For users who need to maximize screen space for viewing PDFs but also want to access the Command bar and document tabs for quick navigation between files.
Tablet: For tablet PC user, this Profile reorients the interface vertically and exposes only key markup and editing tools to maximize screen space while panning, zooming, writing and drawing with a tablet PC stylus.

There are several functions available from the Manage Profiles dialog box, including renaming existing profiles, adding new profiles, importing and exporting profiles, and deleting profiles.
Go to View > Profiles
Active: Switch between active profiles by selecting from this dropdown list.
Import: Click to import an existing profile saved on a local or network drive.

Modify: Click to rename a selected profile. This option is only available when a profile is selected from the Profile list.
Delete: Click to delete a selected profile. This option is only available when a profile is selected from the Profile list.
Location: Define the location of shared, centralized profiles. Click the button to the right of the field to browse to the centralized location. Any new or modified profiles stored in this location will be immediately available. They cannot, however, be permanently modified by individual users: any changes a user makes to a shared profile only affect that user and are lost when Revu is closed.
When going offline, users can continue to use the shared profile that was active when they went offline. The user would not receive updates to the profile until they went back online, however. Similarly, other shared profiles would be available to an offline user, but might have reduced functionality (notably, some tool sets might be unavailable).
Note: Users can save modified, local copies of shared profiles by clicking Add. Such profiles will not be available to other users and will not benefit from updates made to the centralized profile.
In addition to the default Profiles that come with Revu, users can create Profiles that are tailored specifically to their needs.
