Flatten document not an option

I'm working on a PDF form created by another company, and when I go to erase text and images, a pop-up box appears saying I need to SAVE AS a FLATTENED DOCUMENT, but when I go to SAVE AS, that option does not appear.  I don't believe there are any security restrictions with the document since the form is intended for public use.  Help!

Hi @Sk8Hound,

Thanks for using the Community to reach out to us. 

You can save a document as a flattened PDF by selecting File >> Save As >> selecting the dropdown menu and changing the option to "Flattened PDF".

Please let me know if you are able to erase text and images after flattening the PDF. 

Thanks,

There's a workaround, but it's not as elegant as the Flatten PDF option.  You can re-print the PDF to a new PDF with the Nitro PDF printer, and that might give you a flat PDF.  To try this, go to File, Print, and choose the Nitro 11 PDF printer.

Hope it works out for you!
