Revu slow rendering with some documents (PDF) ? Try following steps.

It happens that some vector based documents (plans) make look that Revu takes its time to refresh the document. You should try following steps.

 

 Slow rendering is typically a file-specific issue, and the culprit usually involves the original software used to create the PDF.  Do you know how these PDF files were originally created?  We often see improvements in rendering speeds when we recreate the file using Bluebeams PDF creation engine.  I’d like to have you try this process out, and see if you notice any improvements in speed.  Follow these steps:

 
If the file does NOT contain markups:
 
– Go to File on the Command Bar in Revu, click Create, and then select From File (or press Ctrl+N)
– Browse to and select this PDF, then click Open
– In the Save As dialog, rename the file
– Click Save
 
Revu will recreate this PDF and save it to a new file. Note that if the new version loses fidelity, you can repeat the steps above, and in the Save As dialog, click Advanced and increase the Resolution (DPI).
 
  
If the PDF DOES contain markups:
 
Using Bluebeam to create a new copy of the file should resolve this issue. Since your PDF contains markups, you’ll need to save a copy of the original PDF, delete all markups, create a new copy from this PDF, and then import the markups from the original. To do this, follow these steps:
 
– Open the original PDF in Revu
– Go to File on the Command Bar, click the triangle next to Save and select Save As (or press Ctrl+Shift+S)
– Rename the file and save it
– In this new, renamed file, click to select a markup, next press Ctrl+A to select all markups, then press Delete to delete all markups
– Click Save so you have this renamed copy of the file saved without any markups
– Go to File on the Command Bar, click Create, and then select From File (or press Ctrl+N)
– Browse to and select this PDF (the one with no markups), then click Open
– In the Save As dialog, rename the file
– Click Save
 
Revu will recreate this PDF and save it to a new file. Note that if the new version loses fidelity, you can repeat the steps above, and in the Save As dialog, click Advanced and increase the Resolution (DPI). 
 
The last step is to import all of the markups from the original file:
 
– With the recreated PDF open, go to File on the Command Bar, click Markups, and then select Import (or press Ctrl+F3)
– Browse to and select the original copy of the PDF (the one with the markups) 
– Click Open
– Click Save
 
You will now have a new copy of the file, with all of your markups.
