Release Notes

A minor update to the Word 2007 Redaction Tool. This version can be installed directly over any existing version.

Updates to Version 1.1

  • Fixed bugs:
    • Pictures in the header could cause redaction to hang, Find and Mark to fail to find, or Unmark All to fail to complete
    • Merged table cells could cause redaction to fail
    • Find Next fails to progress if the last redaction mark is in the last cell of a table in the last paragraph of the document
  • Preventative update to ensure that no error can cause redaction to hang


The following items are required:
  • The .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1
  • The VSTO 3.0 Runtime Service Pack 1
If either of these items are not installed, Setup will download and install them automatically, but a reboot may be required.

Important Notes

  • This add-in is not officially supported by Microsoft; however, the source code is available so it can be viewed and modified (please consult the License tab if you have any questions on licensing).
  • We recommend that you carefully review any documents redacted using this tool to confirm that all the information that you intended to redact was successfully redacted.

Reviews for this release

"Top shelf" in every way. First class add-in and very necessary in the kind of work I do. I am pleasantly surprised. I am also surprised that Microsoft did not bundle this excellent tool in Word 2007. One item I would point out is that the interface of the Redatction Tool that I downloaded does not look like the one depicted on the Word 2007 Redaction Tool page. I downloaded version 1.1 Jack
