Extracting pages from PDF files with Bluebeam Revu

In this video, Natalie Delacruz of Orange Blade Consultants shows us how extracting pages from PDF files with Bluebeam Revu can make those large PDFs more manageable. And by “large” we mean many PDF pages, not a single page PDF that happens to have a large file size. Let’s face it, sometimes it’s convenient to have an entire plan set in a single multi-page PDF file right?  And sometimes it isn’t.

The debate has been going on forever it seems.  Do we embrace the convenience of working with a single PDF with lots of pages, especially when you have a PC with lots of RAM and Processor speed? We soon find out that sometimes dealing with a 100+ page PDF is no fun.  On the other hand, when work with many single-page PDFs?  The files open quickly since it’s a single page PDF……but sometimes you feel disconnected from the rest of the sheets, right?  For the record, this video doesn’t touch on the Sets feature of Bluebeam Revu.  But you will want to check out Sets if you find yourself dealing with large plan sets.  This video below deals with dissecting PDFs in the smaller, more manageable sizes. Enjoy.

This process, like most things in Bluebeam is much better with a dual monitor workstation, or 3 monitors! You’ll be selecting a custom range or all pages.
