Flatten Annotations

Post by GermanStMB » Thu Aug 08, 2019 8:39 am

User has flatten Annotations. As a result, the comments are lost. This is a feature.

Abstract from the Manual:
•Click Flatten to disable subsequent content editing. Please note that associated pop-up notes are deleted during this process. The Undo feature in the Title Bar can be used to reverse the flattening process

Is there a posibility to restore the comments after the pdf-file is saved? I'm afraid the comments will be lost finally.

Thank you!

Hi GermanStMB,

Thanks for the post - So long as the document hasn't been saved, then the Undo feature should still be able to undo the flatten, but once you have saved and closed the document then there is nothing that can be done.

If posting files to this forum, you must archive the files to a ZIP, RAR or 7z file or they will not be uploaded.
Thank you.

Best regards
