I would like to flatten my PDF to maintain comments and additional markups and not loose the documents original georeferencing. The PDF is original produced by ArcGIS; additional comments added in adobe acrobat; and then the flattening. This results in a pdf that maintains the markups but does not have georeferencing. How do I maintain the georeferencing with flattening? Thank you

That's what I thought. It's not a good way of doing it. Instead, you should use the Preflight tool, if you have Acrobat Pro DC, or just this simple script, which you can execute from the JS Console: this.flattenPages();
