PDF Redaction removes highlighting if any of the highlighting is in the redacted area

Issue:

PDF Redaction removes all of the highlighting if any of the highlighting is in the redacted area.

Resolution

This behavior is as designed.  The redaction removes the whole object despite only a part is marked.  So, if any piece of the highlighting is in the area to be redacted, the entire highlight is removed.

We also confirmed that Adobe Acrobat does the same thing.
