Bluebeam releases PDF Revu 9, new “eXtreme” edition
Major changes for AEC users include the ability to batch-produce PDFs from DWG files thanks to a new AutoCAD plug-in and optical character recognition, a patent-pending technology that makes text from a PDF selectable and searchable. Previously, PDF programs such as Bluebeam simply recognized their files as images, making text in its digital documents unsearchable.
I’ll have a full Revu of PDF Revu 9 (CAD edition) in the May issue of BD+C.
The new visual search options in Bluebeam PDF Revu 9 can detect words and symbols specified by the reviewer.
