Bluebeam Revu 12 now prompts proactively to remove Untitled Viewports

This has been an issue for a while (and the source of about 30% of our technical support cases).  These “Untitled Viewports” that make it difficult/impossible to get accurate measurements from your PDF with Bluebeam Revu.  The good news is Bluebeam Revu 12 (and every version since) now prompts to remove Untitled Viewports.

Before Revu 12 was released, you’d calibrate your PDF, then you’d measure a distance, only to find that the distance was incorrect.  Sometimes the screen turned blue.  Then hopefully you’d find that there were these “Untitled Viewports” in the PDF that needed to be deleted before you could get accurate measurements.  In other words, you found out after calibrating that these trouble-making viewports were in your PDF.  Then you’d delete them, and start all over again.

Fast forward to February 25, 2014……and the release of Bluebeam Revu 12.  Now, when you open a PDF containing viewports, Revu will issue a notification window asking if you’d like to have them removed – awesome!

And why wouldn’t you want to delete these annoying viewports?  Just do it! You’ll be glad that you did.
