I am able to select the redacting tool, and it lets me select the text I want to redact. However, when I go "Apply" the redactions, the background is grayed out and a blank white box appears (where before that was the box that prompted me re: further questions, etc.).
I've tried restarting my computer (Macbook, running OS 11.3.1), and my Adobe Acrobat DC version is "2021.001.20155".
This is beyond frustrating as I rely on being able to redact as part of my job. Any help or guidance would be appreciated!
Hope you are doing well and sorry for the trouble. As described, you are unable to redact as the application hangs on the blank white box.
- Is this an issue with a particular PDF file or with all the PDFs that you try to redact. Please try with a different PDF file and check. If the PDF is stored on a shared network/drive please download it to your computer first and then try to redact.
We have the same issue here. We use also version 2021.001.20155 on a windows platform. In the version before (with 145 at the end) the problem was fixed. The version before 145 had the same problem. Unfortunately in the version 2021.001.20155 it is introduced again. I have read somewhere that is could have something to do with fonts? First I will try to reset the Acrobat preferences to default for now...
