Print to File Acrobat Pro X for OS/Mac

Opened a file and edited within Acrobat Pro X for OS/Mac.


I added stamps and text boxes.


Within Windows computer I would go to print, Adobe File.


When I do the same with in Mac, it read "Saving a PDF file when printing is not supported. Instead, choose File > Save."


When I follow this procedure, the text boxes and stamps are editable.


I want to save / print the file, so file is "locked" meaning text boxes and stamps are not editable.


How is this done???

    Even better is the following JavaScript-based utility:

    Open pdf. Go to Tools->Actions->Create New Action.

    In the dialog that appears, select Content and there you'll see Flatten Layers. Create an action from there and once done, use that action from Tools->Actions menu to flatten pages.
