Revu's interface is largely driven by a
At the top of the Revu window you will see the Command bar. The Command bar provides access to tools and commands organized by group. It can be hidden or shown by clicking the up or down arrow in the upper-right corner of the application.
PDFs appear in the Main Workspace. Multiple PDFs can be opened at the same time, each in its own tab, allowing you to easily switch between them.
There are three Panels around the Main Workspace which contain a number of tabs. These tabs provide quick access to tools for viewing, navigating, annotating, and gathering information from a PDF.
Below the Main Workspace but above the bottom panel, notice the Navigation bar, which contains tools to help navigate documents.
Right-click on any tab to access a context menu. You can use this menu to Show other Tabs, Hide the current tab or Attach the current tab to another location by selecting one of the options. The Show option reveals a list of available tabs. The Attach submenu reveals the three panel locations (Left, Right, and Bottom) and the option to Detach and float over the workspace.
Panels can be split into multiple areas to allow accessing multiple tabs in the same panel at the same time. This maximizes the usable space in the panels.
In the following example, the Tool Chest is dragged below the thumbnail view so that both tabs may be shown at once. Use the Position Wheel to define other placements, such as side-by-side or above, in addition to the below setting shown.
The configuration of the workspace is saved so that the next time a session of Revu is started, the layout will not have to be re-configured.
The bottom panel can overlay the left and right panels. Click the small arrows ( & ) on the panel border to toggle this setting. Expanding in this manner enables more columns to be displayed in the Markups list.
