Creating Layers from PDFs in Bluebeam Revu – Turn Markups into Layers
Creating Layers from PDFs in Bluebeam Revu - turn markups into layers

Thanks to the folks at Bluebeam , Inc. for this one!  Go ahead and mark this off the wishlist…..


Layers in a PDF are, like layers in many CAD programs, a way of organizing the content in a document.  Think of layers as a switch that can be toggled on or off to control the visibility of everything on that layer.  Layers can hold content and markups; markups can be moved from one layer to another.  Markups can be flattened to a layer, unflattened from that layer, and copied and pasted while retaining their layer.  Layers also appear in the Markups list to allow organizing and processing markups by layer.
