 Reviewers

Installation

If a reviewer does not have Bluebeam Revu, they can download a trial version here.  The "trial" is for a full version of bluebeam; after the trial has ended, one can still use a limited set of capabilities to review documents. Installation will probably require administrative access to the computer.
