The Strikeout Tool

Last updated on June 17, 2014

The Strikeout tool can place a continuous line over selectable text in a document that has undergone Optical Character Recognition (OCR). This tool is useful for indicating text that is to be ignored or redacted.

The annotation ribbon for the Strikeout tool has three buttons:

  • ​Options: allows you to change the line color.
  • Wrist Guard: brings up a wrist guard overlay for use during the strikeout session.
  • Cancel/Done: tap the "x" to exit Strikeout mode before starting, or the check-mark to finish.

The editing ribbon for the Strikeout tool has four buttons:

  • Note: adds a textual popup note to your struck-out text.
  • Options: allows you to change the line color.
  • Delete: allows you to delete the line from the document.
  • Done: tap the check-mark to finish a Strikeout editing session.

Tips When Using the Strikeout Tool

​While using Strikeout, you can use two-fingers to scroll through the document. Switch back to one finger to resume striking out text.

Tap on a strikeout during its initial creation session to display a modified version of the select-text popup menu. From there you can copy the struck-out text, have it read out-loud, or add a note using the Comment button.
