We have a brand new look! Take a tour with us and explore the latest updates on Adobe Support Community.
does Adobe Acrobat Standard DC support redact? We have to move off of Adobe Acrobat X, X Pro and XI... several departments need the ability to redact some pdfs
Redaction is only available in Adobe Acrobat Pro - not in Standard, So, to use the feature, you can subscribe to Adobe Acrobat Pro DC.
For plans and pricing, you may refer to Plans and pricing | Adobe Acrobat DC Link: https://acrobat.adobe.com/us/en/acrobat/pricing.html
More about Redaction, you may refer to Removing sensitive content from PDFs in Adobe Acrobat DC Link: https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/removing-sensitive-content-pdfs.html
Hope this helps, and let us know if you need more assistance.
Here's a shot showing: 1) I own Adobe Acrobat Pro, and 2) I have no Redaction Tool:
Look under the Protect sub-menu...
It is not an option there.
Under the View menu...
View > Protect is shown at the top of my screen shot.
I know that... That's where you will find the Redaction tool.
Please post a screen shot of where you see it. I don’t see it in the Protect submenu. I only see “Restrict Editing”, “Encrypt”, “Remove Hidden Information”, and “More Options”. More Options includes: “Document Security”, “Security Properties”, and “Create Security Envelope”.
Thanks for your help and interest!
I don't have access to Acrobat DC at the moment, but you should be able to find it under the Tools panel. Forget the menus.
Go to Tools and search for "redact".
When I searched for Redact on the Tools Menu, it asked to ADD this, and I clicked that. Then it said OPEN and it worked. THANK YOU!
Very little is left in the menus in DC. 95% of everything has moved to those cute, cuddly tool icons. Using Search in Tools is a must. Curiously, Adobe moved all this stuff so we'd find it more easily.
You don't have to click ADD. That just means "Add to the right hand tool bar". For things infrequently used you can just double click on the icon in the big tools panel.
