Allow option to change color of text selection redaction

A user can currently set/change the color of the rectangle redaction but does not have the ability to change the color of a text selection annotation.  Please consider allowing the user to set a color for a text reaction.

In addition, the color should be able to be set via the API so that our customers can set a default color during a viewing session for a particular use or for a particular user.

    4.5 years later, this still doesn't seem to have made it into the product. can you advise on when this is planned for?

    It is so weird that we allow to select multiple marks but TextSelectionMark that can't change backgroundColor and fontColor.

    The real problem is there is no alternative way for that, we can use RectangleRedaction to change color but it can't get the text that being covered.

    We just had a demo of your redaction service and think it would add great value to our automated staffing solutions, however, the black box redaction creates a jarring visual impression.  We deal with creative talent (designers, animators, etc.) and they use their resumes to express their visual style.  We need to redact PII from these resumes, but want to remain as faithful as possible to their original design.  I think the black boxes from your redaction may be a deal breaker with our agents and the talent themselves.

    If you could simply allow the specification of the color of the redaction through the API, I think your solution would be an ideal fit.
