Block / Hide / redact content
Posted: Fri Nov 20, 2015 3:58 pm
I have several PDF documents that I am trying to redact text from, for example I have a credit report that I want to redact all but the last four digits of the account number from. To do this I have been using a rectangle tool with a solid black fill to show the redaction. I then print the document to a new PDF with the though that the new document will be a image file. Unfortunately, the new document also contains the rectangle that can be moved to expose the hidden text??? Acrobat will create a flat document. How can I get PDF Editor to accomplish this? I don't want to print the entire document to a paper printer and scan it back into to this.
