In Bluebeam Revu 2019, toolbars feature groups of related icons that give quick access to various tools and functions available within the program, including Markups, Measurements and Form Fields. Toolbars will display within every default profile in Revu, and can be customized in various ways to fit your needs. Several ways you can customize your toolbars is to rearrange them and show/hide them within the workspace, allowing you to choose which tools you want to display, and where you want those tools to be located. You can take this toolbar customization even further by creating your own custom toolbars and choosing the exact tools you want included within them.

This article will show you the steps for creating a custom toolbar, with examples using the 64x Bluebeam Revu 2019 eXtreme edition. This function can be performed within all versions of Revu.

To customize the tools within a toolbar or create a new toolbar, right click on an active toolbar. Depending on the profile you’re in, these toolbars will display on the left, right, and/or top of the workspace. Right clicking on a toolbar will activate a dropdown list that allows you to show/hide premade toolbars. To customize these further, select Customize from the dropdown menu.
