ExternalViewers - Working Advanced Settings Strings


#1

Created this thread as a go to page for working ExternalViewer strings for the different PDF viewers out there. In my case I was trying to get Sumatra to open a pdf in Bluebeam Revu,

Due to the lack of posts that dealt with Bluebeam specifically, it took a lot of trial and error for me to find a string that would work.

Feel free to post any working strings you guys are using, THANKS!

Bluebeam Revu - Open PDF

ExternalViewers [
[
CommandLine = “[filelocation]\Revu.exe” /Revu.exe "%1"
Name = Bluebeam Revu
Filter = *.pdf
]
]

I find Bluebeam products very heavy on my old laptop resources hence I use SamatraPDF however Vu allows me to spin 3D files

For 64 bits use

ExternalViewers [
[
CommandLine = “C:\Program Files\Bluebeam Software\Bluebeam Vu\2017\Vu\Vu.exe” “%1” -page %p
Name = 3D viewer
Filter = *.pdf
]
]

for 32 bit its

ExternalViewers [
[
CommandLine = “C:\Program Files (x86)\Bluebeam Software\Bluebeam Vu\2017\Vu\Vu32.exe” “%1” -page %p
Name = 3D viewer
Filter = *.pdf
]
]
