- Select the “Toggle Redaction Mode” button. It’s just above your image, the third function icon from the left.
- Click on your image and drag the cursor to draw a box over the area to be redacted. You can drag any corner of your redaction box to adjust the size of the box, and you can drag the entire redaction box across your document’s image to adjust the area to be redacted. You can add as many redaction boxes as you’d like to your document, or delete existing redactions by using the “delete” prompt (the little red square with a white x) in the box’s upper right corner.
- You may add a redaction label by clicking on the redaction box and selecting from the options or creating a new label.
- Next, save your redactions by clicking the green “Save Redactions” button above your document’s image. You can toggle between your document’s redacted image and the original image by clicking the “Toggle Redaction Mode” button mentioned at the beginning of this FAQ. Note that if you browse away from your current upload and then navigate back to it, your redacted image won’t be your document’s default view, but any document that has a saved redaction will automatically be tagged with “Has Redactions”, making it easy to find all your documents that contain redactions. (Simply click the “Has Redactions” tag in the filter carousel.)
Redactions are “burned into” a document during Download creation when the “Apply Redactions” option has been selected.
IMPORTANT Note: When you export your redacted documents using the Logikcull download wizard, your redacted documents will be re-OCR’d, and the newly created OCR text will be used as the document’s text. Logikcull does this so that you don’t accidentally produce redacted text.
