    how to flatten object in document?

    joshs30235029

      I am trying to redact confidential information within a document by placing black rectangles over the area which need to be redacted.  once I do this however, the data still exists beneath the rectangles.

       

      I attempted "refrying" the pdf by printing it to a new pdf.  This seemed to flatten the black rectangles so that they were no longer able to be selected as objects, HOWEVER, when I scroll down through the document I can still see the underlying data as the black rectangles seem to flicker as the page is scrolling.

       

      Is there a way to basically fuse down the black rectangles so that they fully replace the data they are covering?
