Tablet markups

    Hi, I was wondering if there was a way to use Bluebeam offline with a MS Surface pro 9 and S-pen. That is, going to the jobsite where there may be some internet hitchups. Has anyone had experience with the Surface Pro using Bluebeam? I would like to work on a set of plans without worrying about internet connections as if I had literally had a set of prints in my hands. Thanks. 🙂

    I’m wondering about this as well. I would like to make use of a tablet in the field for field measurements, but have stuck with paper for ease and reliability. (hard to beat the reliability of a pencil and paper).

    I use Bluebeam with my Surface Pro, but with my mouse. I haven’t tried a pen.

    If you’ve uploaded to a Studio Project, there is an ‘offline mode’.
    You can do your markups like normal, and when you do get a stable internet connection, your markups will upload.

    The stylus is just another input device, it should work fine
