Revu is that much easier with VisualSearch 

Drawings contain a large number of symbols, and sometimes you need to hyperlink those symbols to specifications or details. Revu’s VisualSearch feature lets you search for all instances a visual cue or symbol occurs in a drawing set and then apply an action, such as highlighting or hyperlinking, to all of those instances at once. If you are working with hard copies of drawings, you can scan them to PDF and VisualSearch will still work.

How to use VisualSearch:

  1. Open the Search tab.
  2. Click the Get Rectangle button. (Visual will automatically be selected after you click the button).
  3. Draw a rectangle around what you want to search for. The search preview will display on the right of the Get Rectangle button. (Widen the Search tab if you don’t see the preview.)
  4. Adjust the Sensitivity slider in the Options section of the Search tab.
  5. Click the Search button to start the search.
  6. The search progress will display across the bottom of the Search tab.
  7. The results will display in the lower half of the tab. You can select all the results to apply an action such as add bookmark, add hyperlink, add highlight and more

Defining the Search Rectangle

VisualSearch considers everything that is included in the search rectangle – including empty white space. Therefore, it’s best to create as small a rectangle around the search area as possible. Creating large rectangles will result in items not being included in the results. For example, when searching for a post or vertical I-beam on a floor plan, the beam may be alone, next to, or even inside a wall.

The image below shows two different search rectangles around different posts on the same floor. The post on the right would not be found because the search rectangle includes too many additional wall lines. However, the smaller search rectangle would find both posts.
