Bluebeam users sometimes require the ability to work remotely. With that creates questions surrounding how to prepare and implement a remote workflow; while being confident that it will work successfully.
This article covers how to Back Up and Restore settings, Download and Install Revu onto a new computer, Registering a New Computer, and Studio Projects and Sessions.
Backing up and restoring settings
If you’re using Revu on a separate home computer, you’ll likely want to retain the same tool sets and profiles you use in the office. You can do this by backing up your settings, and then restoring those settings onto a new computer. Be sure to save your backup file to a portable device or upload it to a location you can access from your new computer.
Stamps are not included in your Revu settings backup files. To import your stamps onto a new computer, see Backing up and restoring your stamps.
Downloading and installing Revu onto a new computer
You may need to download and install Revu if you’re using another computer outside the office. Revu 2019 uses the same installer across all editions. For Revu 2018 and below, be sure to download the edition specific to your Serial Number and Product Key. For example, if your license is assigned to Revu 2018 Standard, you won’t able to use the same licensing information for Revu 2018 eXtreme. You can find your Serial Number and Product Key on the license certificate sent to you by firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don’t have access to the licensing information specific to your copy of Revu, download a personal free 30-day trial from our site. You’ll have full access to all features in Revu for 30 days. You’ll still be able to import all of your toolsets and profiles (as described above) so you can continue working as normal during this trial period.
After your 30-day trial, Revu will be set to view mode.
Registering a new computer
If you’re the license owner and have access to your Serial Number and Product Key, you may want to unregister your office computer before using another computer outside the office. This will ensure you have enough seats available under your license. To do this, see Transferring your license to a new computer.
Studio Projects and Sessions
Studio allows you to keep working on your projects outside the office, even if you’re offline. Since Projects are stored in the cloud, you can access them from any computer with Revu installed. You can also continue collaborating with your project teams in real time with Studio Sessions. To learn more, see Studio Sessions and Studio FAQs.
