If you are using Bluebeam Revu to print PDFs created in Optuma, you may notice printing times are much longer than would be expected (up to 20 minutes for a single page).

There is known issue when trying to print PDFs via Bluebeam Revu where the file includes a lot of transparency/layers generated by Optuma.


To improve print times, without the loss of print quality, we suggest making the following adjustment to Bluebeam Revu’s print settings:

  1. Open the PDF and click Print
  2. In the window that opens, click the Advanced button on the bottom-left corner.

  1. Adjust the Print Engine drop down from Image / Vector / Grid to Image.

Bluebeam 2

  1. Click OK

When this change is made, the printing time should only take a few seconds per page with no loss in quality.
