How to make Bluebeam Revu look like older versions

This post applies to version of Revu prior to 2018  

So you’ve upgraded to Bluebeam Revu Version 10 (or 11, 12, 2015, 2016, or 2017) from an older version.  Great.  Now you can enjoy all the new features that the current version of Revu offers such as:  Spaces, Links and Places, 3D Markups, Studio Projects with unlimited storage, custom line editor, and Microsoft Outlook Integration (to name a few).

Maybe you like the new look to the interface (we do), but maybe you don’t.  And if you don’t, no worries, there is a nifty tool to force Revu into “Classic Mode”.

Looking for details on the User Interface changes introduced in Revu 2018?

      Hi A. Hicks,
      At the moment, it’s for versions before 2018.

    Doesn’t work in 2018. 🙁

      Hi Joseph, That’s correct. We’ll update the post to indicate that it’s for pre-2018 releases of Bluebeam Revu.
