Bluebeam Revu for the iPad does not contain the same ability to work with Sets that is built in to the desktop software. Sets is a feature that is commonly used to work with individual drawing files as though they are one combined set of drawings. In this video, Jim describes how to use a properly created drawing log to navigate through plan sheets and revisions and explains that this can be used as a workaround for the lack of the Sets feature on the iPad.
- [Voiceover] I mentioned earlier…when we discussed the Studio go feature…that there's no sets functionality available…here in the iPad app.…Now, to me, this is really something…that's sorely missed, since I believe…that the right way to prepare a set of digital drawings…for use on the project, involves processing them…by splitting them up into individual sheets…and then using the sets feature found…in the desktop software to create a navigation file…that lets us work with those individual sheets…as a single file.…Now, I've got a whole discussion on…why to do this and how it works in our course…on managing drawings with Bluebeam,…but since that functionality doesn't exist on the iPad,…let's look at a suggested work-around.…
When I created the documents for this course,…I created this file called the Project Navigation Menu.…Let's go ahead and open that up and take a look at it.…If I were on the desktop software,…I would tap this button here called Construction Drawings…to open up my drawings set,…but if I do this here in the iPad app,…
