- Using Revu for working with typical administrative documents
When using Revu for general administrative documents, a standard, general class computer that meets the above requirements may be used.
- Using Revu for working with large sets of engineering documents
When working with large drawing sets (for example, construction project bid sets) in which the PDFs may contain hundreds of large format drawings, it is recommended that workstations have adequate memory and processor resources. A recommended hardware configuration would be 64-bit Windows with an Intel i5 Dual Core 3.2GHz, Quad Core 2.3 GHz or better processor, as well as at least 8 GB of RAM.
