How To Manually Redact Documents

Manual Document Redaction allows you to create and apply redactions throughout all pages of your file.

This tool enables you to:

  • Redact both text and graphics anywhere in your document.
  • Categorize your redactions using color coding.
  • Assign redaction reasons to any redaction on the page, providing a record as to why the redaction was applied. 

Follow the steps to Redact Manually!

  • Click Manual Redaction from the Toolbar.
  • Next, Click, Hold, and Drag your mouse over a block of text, object, or area.
  • To categorize your redactions, apply a color to your redaction box from the Tool Properties Panel at the bottom of the screen.
  • As per your needs, assign redaction reasons to any of your redactions. CaseGuard Studio provides a pre-established collection of redaction reasons. Alternatively, you can create your own set of reasons by clicking (+) next to the Redaction Reason dropdown.
    • It is recommended to first choose your redaction reason, then apply your color, and then start redacting! The selected redaction reason and color will automatically apply to all redactions drawn until you manually choose another reason or color.
