Flattening Markups

Flattening markups moves the markup from the annotations layer to the content layer. Markups can be flattened individually or all at once. The Flatten Markups dialog box provides additional controls over how markups are Flattened.

PDFs do not need to be open in Revu when the process is run; this is particularly common when the flatten process is run on multiple PDFs. If a document is open in Revu, any changes resulting from the process will be made to the document, but the document will not be saved or checked in (if relevant); the user will need to save and check in the document manually. If a document is not open in Revu, and it is not checked out/locked by another user, changes will be applied and saved to the document automatically (without opening the document in Revu).
