How to Redact Text in PDF Easily

The need to redact text in PDF may come up if you use PDF documents most of the time. If there is any sensitive information in the documents that you would like to keep private from the general public, redacting will be the sure way to make sure that it is completely not visible. When you publish or distribute your document, you will do it with peace of mind knowing that the text that you redacted will not be seen by anyone because it is deleted permanently. In the past, people used markers to conceal sensitive information in the PDF documents. This is very hectic because you will have to print your PDF documents first to be able to redact them. With the redaction feature, you will hide the sensitive text without through the hassle of printing the documents first. It is a very fast and efficient method of covering texts and images in PDFs with PDFelement Pro.
