Editing redactions

Apr 4, 2012 3:02 PM

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).

    You should be able to just use the redaction tool and select over the top of his selections then set your own properties.

    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.

    Sure, you can save a document with the non-applied redaction marks (it will notify you about it when you save the file), and later on open it with them still in tact.
