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.
