Hello,

Text modification (or deletion) inside PDF content is not supported at the moment.
I will add it to the wish list so the development team can consider it for a future release.

So if I really wanted to clear the text right now, I could extract the image, add as a new page and delete the original page?

In case the page only contains an image and some text over it, then yes, it would most probably work.

Hi I have the same need and I solve with a little effort:

1 - Save the page or file as TIF
2 - Convert from generated TIF to PDF

That's it. I get a new PDF with no TEXT

I hope this help.
