Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - "this.flattenPages()" doesn't work.

Does anyone have experience with this?

Please advise...

Thank you!

Pls don't use illegal copies of software

RE: Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - "this.flattenPages()" Doesn't Work

https://www.google.com/search?q=this.flattenPages() may help. It seems to be a frequent question.

Does not work =

1) Nothing is flattened -> One answer from above was to run the command twice.
2) Produces an error
3) You don't have javascript installed/enabled?

Thank you!

We tried googling.

Our flatten is occurring on an RFI from the well-established GC. We've been working with PDF's since their existence. This is the first time we've experienced this.

What does javascript have to do with this? Even if you explain it, I still may not understand. I'm a simple operator. Out side of Excel, I don't know much programming language, but, give it a brief, simple explanation, if you will.

Thank you!

RE: Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - "this.flattenPages()" Doesn't Work

It's a programming language command. Javascript is one way the command is sent to Acrobat.

What is a "GC"? How do you know this command is the one that is not working?

RE: Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - "this.flattenPages()" Doesn't Work

(OP)
I'm sorry... GC = General Contractor.

I know the command is not working, because, after execution, I can still edit the text that I entered/added to the PDF document. (I must be misunderstanding something that you would ask that question.)

RE: Adobe Acrobat Pro DC - "this.flattenPages()" Doesn't Work

How are you running that particular command? There is no "this.flattenPages()" button.
