Search & Redact PDF Content

The Search & Redact function uses our own technology to extract and reconstruct text in a PDF document, search for a given string in each page, then “redact” the string if found. Redaction is the process of permanently removing the underlying text and adding a black rectangle in its original bounds to indicate the area that was redacted. You can also redact using our online Visual PDF Editor.
