Flatten PDF files with PDFsam Visual converting interactive elements into static content, ensuring document security and preventing easy editing or manipulation.
How to flatten PDF files
PDFsam Visual can easily convert Acro forms into a non-editable format, effectively “flattening” them into static content. This not only ensures the preservation of the form’s data but also prevents any easy modification or manipulation. PDFsam Visual goes beyond basic Acro forms flattening by offering the option to transform page content into images. By doing so, the software converts the dynamic elements of a PDF into static images, preserving layout, formatting, and visual elements of the PDF. Your files are processed locally on your computer, away from prying eyes.
- Open the Flatten forms tool
- Drag and drop or select the PDF files you want to flatten
- Set if you want to flatten form fields or the whole pages content
