How to Flatten All Annotations on PDFs to Make Them Uneditable (Create Flattened PDFs)

Note: PDF Reader – iPhone Premium Edition supports the PDF flatten feature to help you preserve valuable content of an annotated PDF file, contract, or form before you email it out.

1. Tap the "more options" icon in the navigation toolbar.


2. Select “Flattened Copy” to enable the flatten process. A copy of the flattened copy will be duplicated in the PDF Documents page.

Δ Attention: Please note that annotations in the flattened copy will no longer be able to be edited or moved. This is designed to protect your important information, such as digital signatures.
