How can we make DocumentCloud better?

Redacting single words or lines

There really needs to be a way to redact a specific section of a document, like a single name, address or phone number in a court document. This many seem overly granular, but this functionality is a must to protect privacy/victims. Deleting a page is not a similar option.

    Definitely agree that this would be enormously useful. Unfortunately, it is also not trivial to implement (neither was page insertion and deletion, though it was a bit easier, which is why we tackled that first.)
