I have a fully marked up (redlined) document that needs to stay unburned with redline mark ups applied. However, there is certain content that has to have the mark ups burned/redacted. Is there a way where only certain redactions are applied but others are left unburned? So far I've been extracting the pages that need some burn marks, remove all the mark ups except what is to be burned in, burning in the redactions needed, then re-applying the redline mark ups. These are records to go to judges but there is some content that judges are not allowed to see. Thanks.
Yes, you can do that using a script.
Follow these steps:
- Select all the redaction annotations you want to apply by clicking them while holding down Ctrl.
A dotted blue line should appear around the selected items. If you do it in the Comments panel you can select a range by clicking the first one, then Shift+Click the last one.
- Press Ctrl (or Cmd)+J to open the JS Console.
- Paste the following code into the lower part of that Console window:
- Press Ctrl+Enter (or Shift+Enter, I believe, on a Mac) to execute that line of code, and you're done!
You can repeat this process multiple times if it's too difficult to select all the ones you want to apply in a single go.
That is outstanding! It works and thanks for your help!
