Answers / Edit PDF
i want to delete a part of a pdf document. how do i go about that? it's no text i want to erase, it's a whole area i want to delete (not the whole page).i use acrobat x pro. when i go to tools, pages, crop, then double click and then ok, it deletes everything but the area that i cropped. i want to do the opposite. i want to delete the area that i selected.

It's best to do a good review of redaction (mark / apply).

thanks for your help! truly appreciate it. ive tried to play around a little with the redaction, but i cant quite get it to work. would it be possible to email you the file, and you could take a look at it? i would appreciate your help a lot
can i really delete a whole area with redaction? i want to remove a "box" in the document. with redaction it seems like i can only cover up the text?
You use the redaction tool to "mark" a region.
Then you must "apply" the redaction(s).
The PDF must be saved for the redaction to be completed.
