Redacting Document Text

With Logikcull's redaction tool, you can easily mark out redactions. We'll automatically re-OCR and save the redacted version for you.

To start redacting, select the “Redact” button in the toolbar above or to the right of the document. (If you do not see the redaction option, you can customize your tool bar. You can learn how to customize the tool bars here.)

  1. Redaction Color: Select between Black and White as a redaction color

  2. Draw Redactions: Click the "Draw Redactions" icon to manually draw boxes around sections of text you wish to redact.

  3. Select to Redact: Click the "Select to Redact" icon and click + drag a text selection. A pop-out menu will appear with the option to redact your selected text.

  4. Redact Current Page: Click the "Redact Current Page" icon to fully redact an entire page.

  5. Redact Multiple Pages: Click the "Redact Multiple Pages" icon to select one or more page ranges to redact. You can also select a redaction label from this menu.

You can click into any redaction to add, remove, or change the redaction label. Toggle redactions to be visible or invisible by clicking the "Redactions" icon in the top toolbar. You can also delete all redactions on a document by clicking the 3-dot menu at the top of the Redactions list in the document viewer.

You don't have to save after each redaction, but make sure to click "Save Redactions" before moving onto the next document.

💡 Producing Redacted Documents:

When you download redacted documents using the 4-step download workflow and include redacted images, Logikcull will:

  • Withhold the native from being produced, even if the file type is selected for inclusion with native files

  • Withhold native parent documents when one or more children has redactions

  • Re-OCR the image to ensure the redacted text is not produced
