Starting off Right

Starting with any programs Preferences is THE place to start.

Even if you’re an advanced user, there are things in here that you will learn.

Beginner to Expert, You Should Take This Course
★★★★★

The course is easy to follow and implement. A lot of useful information no matter if you’re a power-user or the occasional Bluebeam dabbler, you can learn something in this course.

One thing that I would touch on is maybe the features that have a shortcut. For example it’s really easy to turn the Crosshairs on/off (I know that I have big finger syndrome and on occasion accidentally click a wrong button).

Articulate and Clear Training!
★★★★★

Troy is undoubtedly one of the industry leaders in teaching Bluebeam Revu. His instruction is clear and concise, making complex concepts easy to understand.

Great Free Course!
★★★★★

The course had a lot of great information in it, some of which I was able to immediately implement into my Bluebeam instance after I completed the course.
