When I redact a document, as I am applying changes it works fine but when I finalize the redactions it applys it to all pages.

ex. When I redact the first page it applys the redactions of the first page to all pages, even if I only make redactions on the first page.

Redact does not work selectively. It redacts all marked items. But it may well be that I don't understand your problem. May be you post an example (obviously with non sensitive information in).

Sorry must not have explained it correctly, if I make a redaction on page 1, but don't make redactions on page 2, the redactions from page 1 transfer to page 2 without me doing anything.

This can happen if the file was not constructed correctly, or if it has resources (such as images) that are shared across pages. For example, a background image can be used on all pages with a single source stream, so if you redact it on only one page it will apply the same to the others, too. This may not be desired, but that's how it works.
