Redaction: text moving after redacting words

Hi, we’re using aspose to redact pdf documents, but we’ve come across some documents where the text reflows after redaction. Is this a known issue, and is there a fix or workaround?aspose-test-sample.pdf (322.5 KB)
I’ve attached a sample document that shows the problem if you redact the word “Department” in the first line of the introduction.


The PDF document which you are trying to process has its rotation set. Please add annotation like following in order to get correct results:

doc.Pages[1].Annotations.Add(annot, true);

Redacted.pdf (338.9 KB)

Thanks. I hadn’t explained our problem quite right I’m afraid. The redaction looks correct, but in the redacted file you can still select the text under the redacted area (“Department”) in this case.


We were able to notice the issue in our environment and logged it as PDFNET-48550 in our issue management system for further investigation. We will keep you posted with the status of its rectification. Please be patient and spare us some time.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.
