I had been using the Acrobat Pro subscription in combination with the app on my iPad to fill out a template using my Apple pencil which I would then share via email with my office so they would have hand written, signed copy of the daily log form we use.
After the most recent update, the sharing function seems to now be more geared towards a collaborative share, whereas I used to be able to “share flattened copy” which would reduce the file size to a few KB. My issue now is that when I send the form as an attachment, it’s typically larger than 15MB which is less than ideal. Is there any way to export the flattened copy with the new version? No combination of share options seems to be letting me do this.
[Moved to Acrobat forum - Mod]
The "Share Flatten Copy" option is no longer available via the new Share feature in Acrobat 18.09.13 or later.
However, there is a way to generate a flattened copy in Acrobat. Please take a look at this forum document.
Would you please give it a try and see if it is feasible for you?
Please feel free to provide feedback via the online feature request form below so that our Product Management team will take your feedback into consideration for the future releases of Acrobat Reader.
From a practicality standpoint I’m not sure what propted the removal of the option to flatten, but I’m glad there’s a work-around.
We just released Acrobat Reader 18.12.00 to the App Store on December 14, 2018.
This release offers the flattening option in Acrobat's Settings > Preferences.
Please see the updated forum FAQ document for more details.
Would you please update to 18.12.00 and let us know if it works for you?
