How do we flatten a document?

Question

Ed Newbold

When we apply a STAMP to a document, it is applied to the ANNOTATION layer, and I am unable to apply a SIGNATURE on top of the STAMP.  So, how can I flatten (merge all of the layers) a document so I can then apply a signature on top of it?

Thanks very much,

Ed in Ohio

I am answering my own question:  You can merge the Annotation down into the parent page very simply by performing a FILE | SAVE AS and on the upper right-side of the page,  select Flattened PDF from the drop-down box.  Then click the Browse button to choose where you want to save it.  It was a chore finding this information, but after perusing through each section of the Help files, I finally tracked it down.  Thanks to anyone who read and considered this post.

But the flattened option doesn't show for me on some files (filled in forms), even though there is no security.
