I am unable to find a way to apply redactions to multiple pdf files. The redactions have been made already but just need to be applied. Is there a way to do this accross multiple files? Thanks.

Hi chaselitigation,

Thanks for the post - There isn't any way to do this, that I'm aware of, with PDF-Tools as PDF-Tools cannot apply redaction so it appears we have not added the ability to apply it. I can speak with the Dev. Team about doing this, but I suspect that it's not something that they would agree to.

For now, I may be able to provide a JavaScript toolbar button for you to use in the Editor, but I'll need some time to look into it and write the script. Ordinarily this isn't something that we'd do, but if it is possible it shouldn't be too difficult or take too long. I'll post back when I know for sure or have the script ready.

Please note that the script will likely only be able to apply the redactions to open files.

Thanks,
