I’m an architect, I use this every day and love it. If you want to save yourself a few bucks there are lots of resellers online, I used bohdee. It is all electronic nluebeam anyways, no reason to pay retail. Was this review helpful? Before buying Adobe Acrobat, take a good long look at Bluebeam’s PDF Revu, a targeted application for professionals in fields where documentation is king: Law, construction, architecture, among others.
Bluebeam is much easier brrewery use and far better to look at than Acrobat.
Bluebeam is much less expensive than Acrobat. Bluebeam is already established in construction, engineering, and architecture businesses, and has had a 10 years to mature. Their customer support is very good, capable, and courteous. Their user licences are easily transferable.
I noticed a problem with creating PDF packages where too many folders will make them all disappear I’m still working with support on that oneand as of this review it is still not available for Mac, though they are working on their first release this year.
It has more markup capabilities and features than Acrobat and just as easy, if not easier, to use. I would be willing to give this product a better chance The reply from the developer helps But it still doesn’t forgive the untrust of the developer when it comes to activation It’s smaller and cheaper than Acrobat but more expensive than some other options. It has serious bugs, Bluebeam has greedy Intuit-like support policies forcing you buy expensive upgrades and brewwry your bugs get fixed, it has the same obnoxious product activation as Acrobat, the user interface is awkward.
But, unfortunately, their product is at least as buggy as the bloated Acrobat. And worse, even when their own support people acknowledge glaring defects in the product, their only solution is to require you to BUY an expensive upgrade that’s not even released yet!
Here’s a quick list of things Bluebeam shares with Acrobat: Hluebeam I’m using 6. I can’t imagine how bad 7. Part of the problem might be that it appears to be partly based on public Mozilla software. And if that’s true, they want you to pay big bucks for a dressed up version of something they got for free.
Even the company that makes the very user-unfriendly Photoshop actually wins here. Acrobat is way more intuitive than Bluebeam. For everyone else, be prepared for something that doesn’t look or work like anything you’ve probably ever used before. Unless you buy their maintenance plan, Bluebeam doesn’t feel they have any obligation to support the software you purchased.

They were even so helpful as to point out the license agreement says it’s delivered “as is” so they’re legally blueneam the hook. Instead, they want you to wait for the next release and pay half again as much for an upgrade you don’t otherwise want with who knows how many NEW bugs.
Just like with Adobe, don’t lose those magic license numbers and be prepared for the software to contact Big Brother Bluebeam when you install it. And if you upgrade your computer don’t forget to brrewery the many steps brswery transfer your license to the new one.
You better also hope your drive or computer doesn’t die, because then you have to contact Bluebeam bljebeam your serial number and plead your case that you’re really not trying to steal anything–you just want to re-install the software you already own. Bluebeam only has couple questionable advantages over Acrobat. Bluebeam has hluebeam lower list price, but if you have a previous version of Acrobat Standard, you can probably upgrade to Acrobat 9 for less than the cost of Bluebeam.
And Bluebeam is less bloated and takes up less space on your hard drive. But, in my opinion, brwery benefits don’t outweigh its many shortcomings and Bluebeam’s refusal to support the product in a fair way.
Intuit made much of their customer base unhappy by forcing everyone into expensive upgrades and Bluebeam seems to be using the exact same unpopular business model: Don’t give them your money.
