Save overwriting original file

The following example demonstrates how to save the redacted document, replacing an original file:


using (Redactor redactor = new Redactor(@"sample.docx"))
    // Here we can use document instance to perform redactions
    RedactorChangeLog result = redactor.Apply(new ExactPhraseRedaction("John Doe", new ReplacementOptions(System.Drawing.Color.Red)));
    if (result.Status != RedactionStatus.Failed)
        // Save the document in original format overwriting original file
        redactor.Save(new SaveOptions() { AddSuffix = false, RasterizeToPDF = false });
