Redact PDF Files in MAUI

Permanently redact content within PDF documents. PSPDFKit for MAUI offers developers a beautiful UI for creating, previewing, and applying redactions, as well as access to robust JavaScript APIs to automate redaction.

These APIs will be translated to native APIs in subsequent releases, so stay tuned for updates.

Key Capabilities

  • Create, preview, apply — Using the UI or programmatically

  • True redaction — Permanently remove content (not just obscure it)

  • Search and redact — For strings, preset patterns, or regex
