i want to delete a part of a pdf document, how do i go about that?

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.

Try using the redaction tool.

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

Learning resources:

At Rick Borstein's Blog:

White Paper — Using redaction in Adobe Acrobat X

Tutorials at this site's Learning Center:

Adobe TV episodes related to redaction.

And, of course at Acrobat Help:

Be well...

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?
