How to Use the Whiteout Tool

The whiteout tool can delete any part of your document.

We also offer the redaction tool which will permanently delete the selected parts of your document.


Step 1 - Select the whiteout tool

  • Click on Comment.
  • Select the Whiteout option.




Step 2 - Choose a whiteout area

  • Hold down the left mouse button and drag the cursor to mark the area you want to erase. 




You can also use the Whiteout tool for images and annotations. Anything in the area under the red box will be removed.




Step 3 - Erase the content

  • Release the mouse button to erase whatever is under the selected area. 

We have two additional modules. The OCR module allows you to recognize and edit text within any scanned document or image. We also have the E-Sign module that allows you to electronically sign PDFs and track and manage e-signatures in real-time. If those modules are not available for you, you can purchase them here.
