Is there anyway to make all PDF's form fields not able to be copied ?

Post by THTecuity » Wed Sep 14, 2022 7:33 pm

Hi,

Is there anyway to make all PDF's form fields not able to be copied ? For each form field, is there a feature that will let us know if such form field is redacted?

I attached the screenshot. What we want is to make that redacted field not being able to be copied and pasted? Thanks



Thanks

Hi there,

Thank you for your question.

If you are using our function to redact then using the follow-up method to simply apply all redactions to your page should allow you to block this text wherever it may be.

If you need further assistance then let me know.

Hi,

Thanks for your response. Can you be more specific about the follow up method?

I attached a screenshot showing how we redacted a block of text. Specifically, we redacted a field from a fill-in PDF. the field got redacted and become blackened out, but we still able to highlight text and copy the field.

Please help,

Thanks

Hi there,

Sorry for the slightly delay here.

Please refer to our documentation for such a method. The method I was specifically refering to can be found here:

Let me know if you have any issues after using this.
