Unredacting isn't even a thing - redactions (once applied and saved) are permanent.

I didn't think so. Maybe Adobe should put this issue on their to do list?
Thank you for the response.

How could unredacting be put on anyone's list? The whole point is to protect info that must be secret. If there was an "undo redaction" function people would immediately be using it to find people's social security number, or the addresses of mob witnesses, or the truth about UFOs...

I am not talking about redactions that have been applied. I'm talking about
multiple redactions (such as a phone number) made in a document that has
been redacted but not applied and you find out that the exemption number is
incorrect. This is a review copy and has not been finalized and therefore,
not applied. Can you do a mass unredact or do you have to unredact
individually?

Does you mean the markups for redaction? This are comments.

Yes, I guess you could call it markups. It's a redaction that is not yet
permanent until you apply the redaction.

If there are no other (un-applied) redaction marks in the file you can easily do it via the Comment panel. Just select them there and press Delete. If the file has more redaction comments then it might be possible to do it using a script, based on the exemption number.

 

PS. Please stop replying by email, as it posts your full contact details to this public forum...
