Thanks for the reply. I am really surprised this is not already included!!
With that said, thank you for submitting it to the Devs. IMO, this is a must for any advanced PDF editor. There are so many times a item can be scanned and a simple crop can not only clean up the edges of the scan, but if perhaps there is a page number, etc. that you need out, a simple crop is so much faster when doing multiple items.
In my case it was a series of form numbers at the bottom of the page that were old numbers and needed to be removed. The crop would eliminate all at once. The redaction works, but it is very time consuming when multiple pages need done. In my case it was over 50.
A crop is ideal, then having the ability to not allow that information to be visible (ie removing hidden data) would have been much faster than the redaction.
I hope we see this in the near future. I need this feature quite often and that alone could steer me back to Adobe....reluctantly.
Do you happen to know if the redaction can be recovered if someone else were to open the file?
