allows you to REMOVE sensitive information from a PDF
document. PentaPDF Editor will black out sensitive text
or other information, permanently deleting the content
from the PDF document. Some may recall an episode of some
years ago that saw a U.S. government document released
with many terms "redacted". In truth the text
simply had a black highlight placed on top so it was possible
to "read" the text anyway. This won't happen
with PentaPDF Editor Redaction.

|PDF/A File Handling
PDF/A refers to an ISO Standard
for using the PDF format to produce files that are appropriate
for long-term archiving of electronic documents. Being
designed for long-time storage PDF/A files are not intended
to be modified at a later date and are therefore treated
like read-only files that in general do not allow for
any further editing. The editing features Redacting,
Commenting, Rearranging (moving, duplicating, deleting)
Pages, Importing Pages from another PDF/A document or
from an Image Scanner as well as Digitally Signing are
an exception in this case. They can be applied to existing
PDF/A-1b documents using PentaPDF Editor.
PDF/A documents created using PentaPDF-PRO are PDF/A-1b
compliant. You can see that a PentaPDF-PRO document
has been created based on the PDF/A Standard by checking
the 'Subject' area of the document Properties screen.
Editing of PDF/A documents using PentaPDF Editor is
available only for PDF/A-1b compliant PDF/A documents. Read
more about PDF/A
Handling in PentaWare's PentaPDF Utilities.

An option is offered to help ensure a successful conversion
process by removing from the original PDF source file
contents certain PDF features and functions that are not
allowed or not supported in PDF/A-1b compliant files and
therefore could compromise the PDF/A conversion.
