Thread: Redaction problem with multi-page pdf document

  1. #1

    Default Redaction problem with multi-page pdf document

    I have some multi page pdf documents in which I need to obscure some text. I see multiple options to do so, for instance, select a box then Ctrl-E and select "explosion" - text is redacted.

    Problem is that when I go to another page (to redact more text) and return, the change that I made has disappeared.

    How do I get the change to stick? Hopefully the answer isn't to save with every change to a page . . .

    When IrfanView loads a multipage PDF file it converts each page to a bitmap so you're not editing the entire file when you mark one page, you're just editing a bitmap of one page. So, yes, you must save the changes after editing each page.
