Any field or office professionals in the Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) industry that needs to manage hyperlinks in PDF documents.

You will need at least TWO screens for the training to be effective.

  • The first screen needs to be a Windows computer with Bluebeam Revu 2020 installed. (See bluebeam requirements below)
  • The second screen is to display the Zoom meeting (this could be a second monitor, a larger tablet (9″ +) or a smart phone displayed on to a TV).
  • Optional: the third screen is to display the PDF workbook (this could be a third monitor, a larger tablet (9″ +) or a smart phone displayed on to a TV).
  • It is highly recommended that you also have a 3-button mouse (typical computer mouse)

Bluebeam Revu Requirements 

It is highly recommend you have the most current version of Bluebeam Revu 2020 installed before the course. Any Windows version is ok (Standard, CAD, or eXtreme). If you have 2018 or 2019 installed that might be ok, but there are a few differences that can interfere with following along. If you have 2017 or older, you are not going to be able to follow along at all, since the interface is completely different. You can download a 2020 trial below and install it ‘side by side’ your existing install. This will allow you to continue to use your older version without losing your license and you can use the new version to follow along in the training.
