Security setup in Acrobat.

Oct 27, 2013 4:45 PM

I need to user to redact information from any document but not allow to change text of document.

I don't want to put password protection on document.


Is there any way to set Acrobat that user can do redaction but no text change?

Thanks for help.

    When done properly content that is selected for redaction is completely removed from the PDF.

    So, if some of the content is text then that would be a "text change" eh.

    Can you put a constraint on Acrobat Pro's out of the box redaction tool so it only redacts some things but not others? No.

    Maybe possible with a third-party tool.



    Be well...
