Hello,

I am using regular expressions with the "search & remove text" feature in Acrobat X Pro by editing the file SearchRedactPatterns.xml, as can be learned here: http://blogs.adobe.com/acrolaw/2011/05/creating_and_using_custom_redact/

I noticed, however, that my custom queries are always treated case-insensitive in Adobe, which they should not be. At least according to various online regex testers.

So, is there a way to tell Acrobat to make the Regex case-sensitive?

Thanks in advance

I have the same question. 

I tried the "Case Senstive" option, but it only applies if you select the "Single Word or Phrase" option. I am trying to write a Pattern with regular expressions, so that "All" upper case words in the entire document are highligted.

Any sugesstions ?

I know this is an old thread, but I don't see a newer one with the same question.  Did anyone ever resolve this?  I'm still seeing that custom redaction patterns are locked to being case-insensitive, even if the pattern itself implies case sensitivity.
