I have Adobe Acrobat Pro and I am trying to redact information from documents signed with Adobe Sign.  I can highlight the text to be redacted but I'm not able to apply the redaction.  Any ideas? I have dozens of these documents that need redaction.

Not possible. A digital signature locks the file from further editing.

You need to do so before the files are signed.

Damn, I didn't need to redact them until after they were signed.  I only bought Pro for the redaction function. There's no other workaround?

Remove the signature, redact, then sign again.
