Could someone direct me to the settings for redaction of private information such as Tax File Numbers in Adobe Acrobat Pro XI. In Australia the Tax File Numbers can be 123 456 789, 123456789, 12 345 678 or 12345678 and by law we are not allowed to image documents with these numbers visible.
I know how to redact manually but on some documents it redacts all monetary information as well as Tax File Numbers
Are you redacting using the pattern matching feature to find and remove text? If so, I can't imagine how you'd manage to cover all the variants of tax file numbers you've mentioned, and still not impact ordinary numbers.
It seems like your best bet would be to manually redact by drawing rectangles around the area to be redacted, or manually selecting the specific text you want to redact.
I thought that might be the case and what the problem is. I am a newbie to using Adobe Pro XI. Is there any way I can turn the Pattern Matching OFF so that Adobe will only redact what I have manually marked for redaction and nothing else?
