As part of the new Datalogics WebAPI for working with PDF files, Datalogics is seeking testers for it’s new hosted service to flatten PDF files. The service is a RESTful API that allows users to submit an interactive PDF form and return a “flattened” version removing any form fields and leaving only the field appearances in their place. Annotations are also flattened.
If you are interested in testing this prerelease version and have experience working with REST, please contact me directly at my Datalogics email address email@example.com. The sooner the better.
Note: This service flattens PDF form fields and annotations only; transparency flattening is not supported at this time.
