Whenever a User Interface is changed, or updated people seem to go nuts. “How can I change it back to Classic View?!?” The change of interface for Bluebeam Revu in 2018 was no different. I have to admit, I was a little skeptical, mostly because I teach, and I had to learn it very quickly. In this video, I will be showing Bluebeam Revu eXtreme 2019, reach out if you need help determining what version is best for your team.
Everyone I’ve trained or spoke with at trade shows loved the intuitive layout and ease of use, most of whom were self-taught. I would agree with them, as a CAD/Revit user, the tools seemed to be where I expected to find them.
Here is where I lose some of you. It wasn’t until the organization of the new interface that I realized how unorganized the old version was. It makes sense though, every year when developers built new tools or features, they had to tuck them in someplace. They did the best they could with the user always in mind.
To be honest, I see the biggest complaints coming from those who don’t use it every day.
In this long-overdue video, I wanted to simply go through the interface from top to bottom and show you where tools and features are located so you can put that desire for “Classic View” behind you. I’ll also show you how I like mine set up and why.
What are your thoughts on the interface? Have you made the transition?
