The Count tool places a markup for each mouse click, associating a running total of counts with each markup as it is placed. It is somewhat similar to Sequences in the Tool Chest, except that it places a pre-configured (and usually less obtrusive)
In multi-page PDFs, Count measurement groups are automatically split up by
Tip: To be able to get a count total across multiple groupings, give each group the same, easily identifiable Subject on the Properties tab and sort the Markups list by subject.
Once a series of Count markups has been placed, starting a new Count will create a separate series. Sometimes, however, it is desirable to continue an existing Count. To do so:
Individual Count measurements can be removed from a Count series, if desired. To do so, right-click on the markup in the Count series that you want to remove and select Delete '<count name>' from Group. To remove multiple counts at the same time, CTRL-click or use the Lasso tool to select them first. The Count series will be renumbered automatically.
Counts can be split into smaller groups or merged into larger ones.
Groups can be split in parts by selecting specific count measurements to be split into a new group, or broken up into individual count measurements.
Merging counts will combine them into one, larger group.
You can add an action to nearly any markup. Simply right-click the markup and select Edit Action to open the Action dialog box.
Running totals for Counts appear in the Count column of the Markups list.
Note that Count measurement groups are automatically split up by page
The appearance of a Count measurement is configurable, including the symbol used as well as its color, scale, and opacity.
To change the appearance of a Count measurement, select it and click the Properties tab.
Custom count symbols can be added to the Tool Chest.
To create a custom count symbol:
Color: Sets the color of the Count symbol.
Opacity: Sets the opacity of the Count symbol from 0 (invisible) to 100 (opaque).
Symbol: Determines the symbol placed on the PDF to represent the Count.
Scale: Sets the size of the Count symbol.
Show Caption: Select to include caption text on the markup. Click Edit to choose which measurements to include.
Once Show Caption is enabled, the following properties to control the appearance of captions become available:
Font: Sets the font used for the selected text. Available fonts are divided into three regions:
Note: If you attempt to embed a font for which the viewing and editing permissions do not allow formatting, Revu will display a message indicating the font will not be embedded in the PDF.
Font parameters are retained in the PDF such that even if the original font is not embedded or on the viewer's workstation, a suitable representation of the font will be substituted.
Font Size: Sets the size of the font.
Text Color: Sets the color of text.
Font Style: These settings control the formatting of the text. Options include Bold, Italic, Underline, and Strikethrough. Generally, any combination of these styles can be applied to format the text.
