The release of Blackout 4.7 introduces Find & Redact for Images!

Full Release Number: 4.7.25610.52304
Find & Redact
Images now contain a Blackout Find & Redact search box in the top right corner. Find & Redact respects existing Relativity Redaction privileges while supporting all image redaction styles.
Preconfigured Search Rules
Blackout Find & Redact for Images comes configured with a dropdown that includes a rule for redacting all email addresses at the click of a button. System administrators may configure the set of preconfigured quick redact words and patterns to suit their review team needs.
Documents with three or more pages require OCR to be pre-generated via a Blackout Image Project before Find & Redact is available to reviewers. System administrators can configure this threshold via instance setting.
Pre-OCR Image Projects
Image projects now have a setting that allows Blackout Admins to generate OCR for a set of images without running any rules. This tool can help prepare documents for use with Find & Redact or to get ahead of any long-running image project by OCRing early.
Manual Failures Tab Improvements
The manual failures tab now includes paging, filtering, sorting, and several new columns. Mass operations are now more user-friendly.
Blackout Analyze Updates
Blackout Analyze now supports dtSearch syntax rules.
Blackout Image Projects using character-scope redactions fail to redact part of the last character of a rule if a punctuation mark immediately follows the match. This issue exists in Blackout 4.6 and 4.7.
Improved accept all/reject all performance of Manual Spreadsheet Redactions with thousands of markups
Improved stability of large image projects with Character Scope OCR
Mass Accept/Mass Reject operations now respect filters in the Markup Review Pane on image documents
Improved messaging around Relativity errors in the document viewer that cause Blackout to fail to load properly
Fixed an issue where Blackout Analyze results would not export if results contained documents without extensions
Orphaned markups now appear in the Manual Failure tab
Fixed an issue where redactions could be placed in the incorrect order when run through a propagation project with many reverts and reruns
