Search and Redact Text in PDF

Have you ever needed to search a certain word or phrase and redact it in your document stored in your SharePoint account?

The search tool is one of PDFfiller’s latest enhancements. Using this tool, you can find a word or a phrase in a PDF or Word document stored in your SharePoint account. Now you will save even more time editing or annotating your attachments because the search tool not only finds words, but also enables you to redact them.

To get started, simply select a Word or PDF document from the list on the left, then right-click and select Edit with PDFfiller from the list.

The PDFfiller Editor App will create and upload a copy of the document with all the changes you’ve made to your SharePoint account. The file name of the copy consists of the original file’s name with “pdffiller” added. The original file will remain unchanged.
