    Sure would be nice to pick between the one sheet or multiple sheets and apply those changes across multiple pages in a PDF Binder, instead of only 1 page at a time.

      H Wayne – Yes agreed. Although Modify Colors doesn’t allow for multi-page work, Colorize, Grayscale, Black and White, Luminosity-Saturation-Hue, and Mask Images all have the ability to apply to multiple Pages in a PDF.

    Can you change the contrast level or darken graphic on a pdf in Bluebeam Revu?

      Hi Tina – A couple items to look at in regard to darkening the graphics of a pdf file in Revu. Verify that the dimmer option is not turned on. You’ll see a small light bulb icon in the lower right. That’s the toggle for the dimmer.

      Then if the pdf was made as a greyscale type, the lines might simply be a shade of grey instead of a nice dark black tone. You can use the Color Processing tool in Revu to reprocess as Black and White from the Process Type drop down.

      If that doesn’t get what you need, you can use the Modify Colors option, and choose the source color and what you want it converted to. So for example grey to black. Or blue to green or whatever the needs might be.

      Hope that helps!
