Adobe Acrobat plug-in for masking areas on PDF pages.

MaskIt is a plug-in for use with Adobe Acrobat that allows you to mask areas of pages of PDF documents so that anything that would normally display or print in that area will no longer appear. It is particularly useful for removing items such as logos, dirty areas appearing in a PDF file after scanning, confidential information or headers and footers. Additional items can be added in these masked areas later, such as annotations or text output from either Mapsoft Impress or Mapsoft Impress Pro.

MaskIt allows you to erase areas of content from a PDF document. Use the MaskIt tool from the toolbar to draw a marquee, then select whether you want to remove content inside or outside that defined area, and the content is removed.

Mapsoft MaskIt - Features

MaskIt is a plug-in for use with Adobe Acrobat that allows you to mask areas of pages of PDF documents so that anything that would normally display or print in that area will no longer appear. It is particularly useful for removing items such as logos, dirty areas appearing in a PDF file after scanning, confidential information or headers and footers. Additional items can be added in these masked areas later, such as annotations or text output from either Mapsoft Impress or Mapsoft Impress Pro.

MaskIt allows you to erase areas of content from a PDF document. Use the MaskIt tool from the toolbar to draw a marquee, then select whether you want to remove content inside or outside that defined area, and the content is removed.

MaskIt can create masks that remove information from either:

  • Inside a defined area, such as a graphic or logo
  • Outside an area, for example, to remove headers and footers from a page but leave everything else on the page intact.

Masks are easily defined using the Mask tool available from Acrobat's main toolbar. Once defined masks can be applied to the current document and/or saved for future use.

When defining masks the following options are available:

  • Mask Type Controls: the type of mask to apply. Two types of mask can be applied: Inside where the area inside the defined area is masked or Outside where the area outside the defined area is masked
  • Mask Area: Defines the area to be masked
  • Page Range: Specifies those pages to which you wish the mask to apply
  • Page Spread: Specifies the page spread, of pages lying within the specified page range, to which your mask is to be applied

Mask configurations can be saved and reused using the Mapsoft MaskIt option accessed from Acrobat's Plug-ins Menu. Manage multiple documents in one batch operation, by using MaskIt in conjunction with Mapsofts macro builder tool Automator.

Simply select the mask you want to use from the drop-down list of available masks listed in the Mask to Apply field and click Apply.
