Instructions and Help about Google Docs Redact PDF

At some point, you may need to email or share otherwise a PDF document that contains confidential or sensitive information. Quite naturally, we feel apprehensive about disclosing such information. In a situation like this, you can black out any part of a PDF document online using a very simple tool that pdfFiller has to offer. In the past, you would have had to print the document and redact the text with a black highlighter which would often soak through the paper making text on the other side illegible. Besides needing a printer and a scanner, the process probably took far too much time to complete. Now there is a far easier way to redact PDF documents. You can simply use pdfFiller! To get started, upload a document to your account or open one that’s already there. Click the Blackout button, the redacting tools will appear under the main toolbar.

To black out text, click the highlighter icon and select the content that you want to black out by clicking and dragging the cursor. Release the cursor when you have finished redacting the text. You can use the slider to resize the tool.

You can also black out a picture of any dimensions. Click the rectangle icon, place the cursor at any angle of the rectangle you need to black out, press down the mouse button, drag to the opposite angle of the rectangle and release the button.

Video Review on How to Blackout PDF Online in Google Drive

You can now do a Google Docs backup of your docs at a later time, as well as a Google Drive backup of just the PDFs. So if you delete the Docs backup of the HTML, you can still recover the Docs backup of the PDFs if you have the Google Docs browser open.) Google Docs Backup does not overwrite .pdf files directly. You can still read your old .pdf files from the Google Docs backup if you want. I recommend, though, putting the .pdf files in their own folder if your Docs/HTML files are all in the main Google Docs folder. If you remove the Google Docs backup file at a later time, you will be able to get the original .pdf files back at Google Docs. ’redact PDF Google Drive’ is a simple way to open Google Docs, Sheets, and Slides files in your Google Drive and get a more secure and efficient way to share your documents and keep them up-to-date. After you enable redact for Google Docs you should do the following things: Remove the file extension from your files which is: doc, DL, DOCX, docent, HTML, JPG, PPT, PPTX, RTF, ODF, TXT, TTA..

Great experience! I was able to get the rental applications done for my house rental. Super easy to use. Clear instructions, I found enjoyable to use this software. I'm not that good with computers but I was able to use it without much difficulties. I can't think of anything that I didn't like. I had to take a little more time to find out how to get confirmation of my forms I sent, other than that it was fast and easy.
