A client and I are working on finalizing a document. He prepared the pdf by scanning records, then redacting the parts that were not applicable. I want to modify the appearance of the redactions (Redaction Properties?). How can I do that? For example, he has all that stuff blacked out. I want to change it to white out, and possibly add text like "Redacted by ABC". I have previously used Acrobat X to do this in documents I created and redacted myself. How can I do this in a document created and redacted by my client? He is using the latest version of Acrobat (he just bought it).
Once the redaction marks have been applied, you can't edit them anymore.
You can set the default properties of the redaction tool to have a white
fill color and the overlay text you want, or you can edit pre-existing
redaction markups, but only if they haven't been applied yet.
Thanks! If the redactions cannot be modified or changed (although they can apparently be the subject of further redactions) can an pdf file be saved with the redactions marked but not applied? That is, with the saved document preserving the parts marked for redaction to be applied/finalized at a later time. Or will any marking for redaction be lost if the document is saved without being applied?
