PharmaDoc Redact


  • Converts Acrobat highlight 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

  • The “Convert Annotation to Mark” function allows you to convert a Highlight annotation to a Redaction annotation. You can also specify the replacement string and reason.


  • The folder selection dialog has been redesigned for ease of use.
  • The reason can now be specified by date on the Batch Marking dialog.
  • The pull-down menus for the replacement string and reason for the Redaction Style can now be edited.
  • Preferences > Justification Table for Redaction Proposal Version > The initial value of the top and bottom edge of the Trimming Range has been changed from 7mm to 2mm.
  • Fixed a problem that prevented AnnotationX from uploading the redaction annotations added by Redact.
  • Asterisks at the end of replacement strings are now replaced with “*” (six lines) characters.
  • Since it is not possible to create a Final Redacted Version from Redaction Proposal PDF, the message “It is not possible to create the Redaction Proposal Version or the Final Redacted Version from the Redaction Proposal PDF” is displayed.
  • Windows 11, Microsoft Word/Excel 2021 are supported.
