If you choose to create a PDF markup summary, you can customize the summary to your exact needs. One option available while creating a PDF summary is ‘Append and Hyperlink to the Current PDF’. Choosing this will hyperlink and append the summary to the original marked up document. This allows users to use the summary to jump to the original markups on the page for quick reference.
However, sometimes this option is unavailable in the PDF Markup Summary dialogue box. If you find that the ‘Append and Hyperlink to the Current PDF’ option is grayed out, there is generally an easy fix.
In this article, we will cover how to re-enable the append and hyperlink option if it is unavailable. The following examples are from Bluebeam Revu 2018, but the process will be the same for all versions of Revu.
To start with, you will want to open a marked up PDF. Because you will be creating a Markup List summary, you will need to have at least one markup on the page.
I’ll open up one of my recently edited documents using the Recents section within the File Access panel.
From the Markup Summary dropdown, select PDF Summary. The PDF Markup Summary dialogue box will open.
