Did you apply the redactions and saved the document?
Marked the text to be redacted using the "Mark for redaction" control.
Had redacted area fill colour set as black.
Applied redactions using the "Apply Redactions" control and highlighted text was indeed blacked out.
However when the blacked out text is selected in either Reader or Professional and copied to Word all the redacted text is revealed?!
Did you update Acrobat?
Thanks for the response Bernd.
I've checked and the automatic update function is enabled.
When I check for updates none are available though on Googling it seems this may be more to do with Acrobat having stopped supporting Acrobat 9 and as such rolling out updates??
9.5.5 was the last version.
When I click on Help >About Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro it states I'm runnuing 9.2.0?
When I click on Help > Check for updates it states "Updater is already running"
How do I update from 9.2.0 to 9.5.5?
thanks Bernd seems to have done the trick.
