Hi

Can you tell me if PDFsharp allows me to redact content in PDF files

I need a solution which will let me remove confidential information from a PDF before I send it out

Any advise, or samples to show how it can be done (if it can be done) would be helpful

Many thanks

I don't know. I do not know you.

PDFsharp was not developed for that task. You can use PDFsharp to extract text from PDF files with some extra code.

"Extra code" means code shared by others or code written by you.

Are all your PDFs coming from the same source/same application? That will make things simpler.

Hi Thomas

Thanks for your response

I don't know you either! - I am new here and comparing different products to find one which meets my needs

It will be on PDF files from a variety of sources so not all the same, but the content to redact would be similar e.g. TAX ID, phone numbers, addresses etc

If anyone here has done similar and knows of a 3rd party tool or extra code for PDFsharp then please let me know, if not I will continue my research with some other products which may be more designed for the purpose

Thanks again
