How do I cover up text in a printer?

Unless you plan to just print Black over the current text, so you see something like a blacked out rectangle, there is no way to “erase” existing text on a page in a mono laser printer. You’d have to try and manually remove the text on the page and then print something in the area you just removed. It is not easy to exactly line up text or get exactly the same font and size text. A better way is to scan the page using an MFP Scanner into a PDF format (.PDF) file in as high a resolution as possible, then with a full Erase Pdf program on your computer, go into “Edit text mode” with that PDF. You should be able to identify/detect the text field, erase it, and enter the text there you want. Then print the file out. Be careful to use the same font when you enter the new text. Good luck.

PDF documents can be cumbersome to edit, especially when you need to change the text or sign a form. However, working with PDFs is made beyond-easy and highly productive with the right tool.

How to Erase PDF with minimal effort on your side:

  1. Add the document you want to edit — choose any convenient way to do so.
  2. Type, replace, or delete text anywhere in your PDF.
  3. Improve your text’s clarity by annotating it: add sticky notes, comments, or text blogs; black out or highlight the text.
  4. Add fillable fields (name, date, signature, formulas, etc.) to collect information or signatures from the receiving parties quickly.
  5. Assign each field to a specific recipient and set the filling order as you Erase PDF.
  6. Prevent third parties from claiming credit for your document by adding a watermark.
  7. Password-protect your PDF with sensitive information.
  8. Notarize documents online or submit your reports.
  9. Save the completed document in any format you need.
