Creating Custom Line Styles in Bluebeam Revu

Make your markups stand out by creating your own custom lines styles in Revu. You can create custom line styles can contain text, multiple lines, and vector images. Revu already contains a pre-loaded Standard line set, but you can also create your own new styles or sets of styles. Your line styles can then be shared with other users after they are created. Custom line types can be applied to Ellipses, Lines, Polylines, Rectangles, Polygons, and Cloud markups.
