While hosting the Ideate, Inc. June Bluebeam Revu webinar, David Haynes, Bluebeam Certified Consultant, and Sash Kazeminejad, Bluebeam Certified Trainer, answered questions from attendees. Below are some that other Revu users may find helpful. Go to Collaborating in a BIM World with Bluebeam Revu to see a recording of the entire webinar.

Q. Is it possible to input markups into a Studio Session?
A. No, it is not possible.

Q. Regarding the Responsibility Custom column, can only the original author manipulate it, or can others manipulate it as well?
A. If someone creates a Custom Column and you are not in a Studio Session, anyone can fill in the data. If you are in a Studio session, the person who creates a comment owns that comment, and therefore others cannot make changes. 

Q. Can the ability to comment be restricted by person?
A. No, everyone in the session has the ability to comment and edit. It is important that everyone understand and adhere to “markup etiquette.”

Q. Can multiple users create comments on or edit the same document concurrently?
A. Yes, if multiple documents are added to a Studio Session and people are invited and have permission to make comments on those documents, then they can create comments and edit simultaneously. However, you cannot delete a comment that someone else posts.

Q. What happens if someone loses or doesn’t have internet access?
A. If someone makes markups while they are not connected to the Internet, the markups will be loaded as soon as the connection is restored.

Q. Can someone import multiple pages of markups from one PDF to another with a single command, or does it have to be one sheet at a time?
A. You can import multiple comments at once, as long as the documents line up.

We want customers to come to us first with questions. We don’t want them spending valuable time trying to figure out how to complete a task, when we most likely have the answer at our fingertips. And if we don’t know the answer, we will find it quickly.

Recently, we heard from a customer who had talked with our support team. Joel Roderick, Technical Design Manager with Water Technology, Inc., was working in Ideate Sticky and having trouble loading a tab into Revit software. Our support team found the cell with a formula that caused the problem. A quick change to that cell resolved the issue. Following the resolution, we got an email from Joel with this nice comment:

“I am impressed that you put the effort into figuring this out. You have exceeded my expectations!”
