Revu 2015.1 Update Notes

AutoCAD 2016

PDF creation support through the AutoCAD plugin (Revu CAD and Revu eXtreme only) is now supported for AutoCAD 2016 and 2016 LT.


Sets 3.0 Enhancements

Sets provides a method to navigate a large collection of PDFs as if they were a single document. This update adds backward compatibility so that Sets created in 2015.1 are supported in previous versions.

Note: When opening a Set created in 2015.1 on an older version of Revu, Category headings will not appear, as this feature is specific to Revu 2015.
