Bluebeam Revu - deactivating section cut hyperlinks

Bluebeam Revu - deactivating section cut hyperlinks

Bluebeam Revu - deactivating section cut hyperlinks

I'm working on a project with an enormous set of very complicated drawings. There are section cuts all over the place. As I'm moving around on the plan, I accidentally click one of these section cuts and it throws me hundreds of sheets back in the set, and then I go back and try to find my place again. It's only 9 am and I've already done this three or four times this morning. The distraction and wasted time is driving me batty.

I'm using V21.0.30.

Is there a way to globally deactivate all hyperlinks? I searched for a while and didn't see anything, but surely this is an option.

Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Bluebeam Revu - deactivating section cut hyperlinks

No idea. But if you have a mouse with extra buttons that you can use in web browsers for back and forward, you can use them in bluebeam, too. When I accidentally click a link or us a bookmark to navigate, I tap the back button on my mouse and it takes me back to where I was before.

RE: Bluebeam Revu - deactivating section cut hyperlinks

Thanks phamENG. My mouse doesn't have one of those. Maybe it's time for a new mouse.

I'm probably the weird one. I don't use those links very often, so they're multiples more of a problem than benefit for me.

RE: Bluebeam Revu - deactivating section cut hyperlinks

If you hit "alt+n" it should open up a link tab.

I do not see a way to disable them, but you could delete all of them it looks like.

Thanks S&T. I deleted them. That should help!

RE: Bluebeam Revu - deactivating section cut hyperlinks

On one of your sidebars right click and find the "links" tab. In here you can select all hyperlinks and delete them.

FYI if you don't have mouse buttons then ALT+left is previous view. And this button on your nav bar:

edit: I didn't read S&T's comment...
