A few years back (actually about 6 years), we became resellers of a great piece of PDF editing software for Windows PCs & Tablets called Bluebeam Revu. The first and main reason that we got started with Bluebeam was that you could draw in digital ink on PDF files.
But Bluebeam was and is much more than just an ink tool for PDF files. It is a game changing tool for companies working in Architecture, Engineering and Construction. It’s a brilliant tool for Mark-up, Estimating, Take-Off, Quality Control and PDF Collaboration.
For working on PDF plans and drawings there is no more advanced tool than Bluebeam Revu. Even for companies working on construction and legal contracts (see Compare Documents and Redaction) Bluebeam has some special features.
However, these days if all you need to do is fill out a form, sign a document or draw on PDF files, there is a simple and cheap alternative available in the Windows Store. Drawboard is without a doubt one of the best PDF editors available on any platform, but it excels when you have a tablet with an inbuilt active digitizer like the Surface Pro 3 or the Toshiba Z20t.
Another good thing about Drawboard is that it was created by a Melbourne based start-up that is poised to take on the world.
At $9.99 it’s a no brainer! More about Drawboard here:
