Bluebeam® Revu® 2018.6 Update Released

Taylor JohnsonJuly 30th, 2019

Bluebeam® Revu® 2018.6 was just released on July 24, 2019. The latest version of Revu was a maintenance release that addressed the following issues: 

  • Error message was not displayed when attempting to use the Revu full installation package instead of the patch installation package.
  • Updating to a newer version of Revu using the patching installation package would hang or take longer than expected in some circumstances.
  • Changing profiles resulted in removing tools from “My Tools” tool set.
  • An object reference exception error was intermittently displayed when closing Revu.
  • Multiple pop-up messages displayed when using the Bluebeam PDF printer if the BBprint.log was deleted while the BBprint.exe was stilling running.
  • A "Signature Invalid, Document Altered" message displayed when signing documents using IdenTrust Global Common (IGC) certificate.
  • Compatibility issues with some smart card readers caused digital signatures to fail to complete.
  • Compatibility issues with digital certificates intended for signing and securing emails with S/MIME encryption.
  • Error displayed when applying third-party digital signatures with custom appearances containing a graphic file.
  • Already rendered content would flicker when starting to draw a markup, then panning the document to a new region of the page and adjusting the markup shape before it’s placed (via small mouse movements and mouse clicks).
  • Using tab button to commit rotation change for some markup tools caused Revu to crash.
  • Switching or closing the Properties panel before committing change to property value caused Revu to crash.
  • An increase in memory consumption could slow down Revu in specific scenarios when closing a document, un-splitting or switching views, or when leaving Revu open for an extended period.
  • Adding count measurements to a document in a Studio Session and then undoing the count and clicking “leave session” caused Revu to freeze.
  • Using “close all” tabs function caused Revu to intermittently crash.
  • Inserting pages with hyperlinks prevented some documents from being reopened or used for other processes.
