Failure to report error when redacting in Acrobat X

Jul 23, 2012 3:02 AM

Tags: #acrobatx #redaction

I have experienced a problem when using Acrobat X whereby after highlighting all of the text in a file that I wish to redact and then clicking redact certain passages of text fail to redact but fail to alert me of the failure.  As I may be redacting documents of several hundred pages it isnt practical for me to go through checking that each redactino was successful.  Is there a way to turn on an alert to warn me if a passage of text fails to redact to to information me how many of my redactions succeeded (ie 99/100 redactions were successful).

    Are you able to select and/or search on the text that fails to redact? it's possible that this isn't really text but an image (or scan) of the text. The Search & Remove Text feature can only work on information that is actual text. If it is a scan or image, you can run the Recognize Text command so that the Redaction tool finds the text..
