Subject Re: Adding a Redaction annotation (without applying it)
Date Mon, 26 Jun 2017 19:55:48 GMT
Hi Frank,

Thanks for your reply.
- Windows 7
- I didn't want to edit the xfdf files at all, as I had understood they
should work...
I'm seeing now that the lines end with "\r" only. I'll try to replace them
with "\r\n".

Regards, Gilad.
