Copy text from AutoCAD to Revu, and vice versa.

If you use both AutoCAD and Bluebeam Revu, a PDF markup software package, this tip from Michael W. Miklaszewicz is for you.

Text created using a Bluebeam text box can be copied into AutoCAD with a simple Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V, greatly saving duplicate typing time. It is inserted into AutoCAD as mtext and can be manipulated as usual. However, the opposite is also true; inserting AutoCAD mtext into Bluebeam inserts the text as a text box, and can also be manipulated in Bluebeam as such. I hope this helps folks who regularly use both platforms, as I do.

I presently use Bluebeam Revu R13, and AutoCAD Architecture 2013.

Notes from Cadalyst tip reviewer R.K. McSwain: We don't have Bluebeam to test the insertion of text into that application, but this tipster certainly makes a good point regarding the insertion of text from other programs into AutoCAD. Just about any type of text that can be copied to the Windows clipboard from an application can be pasted into AutoCAD as mtext. This can be very helpful.
