One issue you may run into when doing comparisons is that you may need to compare two documents of different sizes. This may occur if you receive a revised inset of a single room that you need to compare with the original site plan that the room was a part of. Thankfully, Bluebeam Revu has accounted for this issue and allows you to still use both Compare Documents and Overlay Pages by aligning points for comparison.
This article will show you the steps for using Align Points for Overlay Pages, with examples using the 64x Bluebeam Revu 2019 eXtreme edition.
To perform either Compare Documents or Overlay Pages, select the option from the Document dropdown menu. You can align points using either tool, but for this demonstration we will be looking at Overlay Pages.
For further navigation of the overlaid image, you can open up the Layers tab and switch through the layers to see both the original document and the revision on their own.
