Bluebeam Revu version 7 and above


The file size of your PDF is too large in certain situations, such as when you want to email or upload it for use by a another person.


Use the Reduce File Size function.

  • On the Document menu, click Reduce File Size reduce-file-size.


  • In the Reduce File Size dialog, change the options until the Estimated size gets low enough.
  • Click OK.

Note: Many of the options in the dialog will also affect the clarity of your document, so it’s a good idea to perform this operation on a copy of the file, rather than the original.

If you want to reduce the file size of a large number of documents at the same time, you can use Batch Reduce File Size.

  • On the File menu, hover over Batch, then click Reduce File Size.
  • In the Reduce File Size dialog, choose the options you want and add the files to process.
  • Click OK.
