    Did you know that you can have a PDF open when you open Revu?
    If you want anything to open, like say a Dashboard, do this.

    Preferences (<Ctrl+K>) > General > Options> Open PDF on Startup> (Paste file location of PDF)

    I don’t think I’ve ever used that feature. In the past, I have created a new shortcut on my computer and pasted the path to my dashboard on a Studio Project. This way it opens Bluebeam, the Project, and the dashboard all in one double-click.

    I was aware of this option. And I can see the benefit if you’re attaching the same PDF to all documents you open.

    Can you explain more how do you utilize it? Am I missing something with it?

      Those who have templates or dashboards open for everyday tasks. Dashboards link to folders of many drawings so it can be a great shortcut to have it open automatically with Bluebeam. It could also be used if someone is working on the same drawings for several days. If you are doing estimates on the same set of drawings every day for a week, you could just have it open… Although it’s also at the top of your Recent Files list too.
