    Is there a mechanism to flatten AcroForm fields? Meaning I want to remove the controls and have the visual representation of the form. I am automatically filling an AcroForm and want to merge many together to create one document (many pages) of the same AcroForm with the data on each page being different. Users will print the documents and shouldn't be able to change them via the form fields.This seems to be pretty standard for pdf libraries but I can't seem to find it in this one.

    Hello Angela,

    Form flattening is not implement built-in, though we have the feature request logged in our feedback portal here:

    (Make sure to cast your vote to increase its priority.)

    Please check the sample project attached in the feedback item, which demonstrates how this be achieved with the currently available API.
