How do I flatten an existing pdf?

Post by ap_mi » Mon Sep 28, 2015 7:39 pm


Is it possible to flatten the forms of an existing pdf with the PDF-Tools SDKV4 ? If so, can I get an example of how this could be done?

Thanks in advance.

Hi ap_mi.

You cannot do that from the PDF-Tools SDK but you can do it from PDF-XChange Editor SDK or you can wait for the next build of the Core API SDK which will also include that functionality.
