Can I also just add that we really need to be able to access the blocked out information ourselves. We were using the stamp tool which really was ideal BUT the information underneath is lost forever. We need something like stamp but with the ability for us to see what is underneath and no one else.
is this possible??
You seem to want to have your cake and eat it. I don't think you can. You must retain the original separately.
You are right tha the rectangle boxes aren't ideal. Text copy/paste still works too. What you need is a common industry requirement: it's called 'redaction'. Often the right buzzword is all you need...
Also, the version you are using is so old that 1) it's not supported anymore and 2) most readers here won't know how it works.
- Redaction could be your solution, but the latest version does this better and differently.
- You can also certify the doc and lock it.
- Try creating signature appearances without personal info in it.
- Get a trial of Acrobat 10 and see if that's the way to go.
Hi. Ok thanks for your help. I will try Acrobat 10 trial version.
