I am editing a document that had a strikeout (not the bold line from Comment) across several words in a sentence. It is a very light, red line. I try to eliminate it but if I highlight and delete the text, the strikeout feature advances to the next available text and is visible there. It is visible on the final document after editing.
Was this strikeout part of the PDF when it was first made? If so it's just a line on the page, same as underlines, which has no actual connection to the text.
