> How do i convert a PDF form into a flattened pdf.
You mean to remove the interactivity from the form fields, and make the
content a part of the page? You can do this using some Acrobat
server you could use any one of a number of 3rd party developer tools
(activePDF Toolkit, FDFMerge).
However, if you really do not want the user to be modifying the contents
of your PDF form, I would apply some security (owner level password, so
the user *will not* require a password to view the document, but they
will rather just not be allowed to make any changes to the document). In
Acrobat you can do this by pressing Ctrl+D then click on 'Security'. If
you get stuck, post back here and one of us will help you through it.
