PharmaDoc Redact


  • Converts Acrobat highlight annotations and rectangle annotations to redaction annotations in a batch.
  • The use of dedicated marking tools in accordance with regulatory requirements makes it easy to perform masking tasks.
  • The creation of Redaction Proposal Version (Redaction Proposal PDF, Justification Table for Redaction Proposal Version) and Final Redacted Version (Final Redacted PDF), which used to be a complicated process, can be easily created with a single click.
  • Redact automatically checks whether any text remains under the masking area, and pinpoints the areas that have not been unredacted.

New Functionalities

  • With the “Resize Mark” feature, you can adjust the area to be actually redacted while visually confirming it, without creating a Final Redacted PDF.


  • Convert Comments to Marks: Fixed an issue where annotations with “Use annotation color” checked were not interpreted as yellow and couldn’t be converted to marks.
  • Fixed an issue where “*Replace when submitting approval information of new medicine.” was occasionally not automatically appended to footnotes on pages with string replacement.
  • Justification Table for Redaction Proposal Version
    • Enabled specifying the starting page for page numbering in the output. This can be specified in the detailed dialog.
    • Fixed an issue where duplicate rows were output in the masking list when specifying a screenshot area on a page with “Mark with Rectangular”.
  • If Acrobat’s sandbox protected mode is enabled, the plugin menu will display the “PharmaDoc Redact (Disabled by Protected Mode)” menu.
  • Disabled installation on Acrobat Reader DC.
