If you want to redact multiple identical texts, please refer to Step 5. If you want to redact a whole image, just double-click on it. You can undo the redaction by clicking on the top left Undo icon if you don't want to redact it. Note that the rectangle would be filled with black when you put the pointer on it, once you move the pointer away it turns to be a red rectangle.
Step 3. Set the redaction properties including the author and the appearance before you apply the redaction.
Right click the marked content and select "Properties" from the drop down list. A Redaction Properties panel will appear on the right side, you can set the information and appearance as you wish.
