Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro - I want to flatten or merge layers. The help says "Click the Layer Button". Well WHERE IS IT OR WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE??? I get so frustrated that the help says something like that and doesn't give any clue where it is or what it looks like. A search for Layer Button doesn't help either. I've been turning toolbars on and off and searching for an hour to try and find the elusive Layer Button. Frankly I think your help files are just horrible.
in Acrobat Pro XI I found the layers button finally, but it's greyed out-- I have a stamp and text boxes-- are they not layers? If not, how else to flatten without printing to pdf--or is that the only way, as cumbersome as it is?
They may or may not be on layers. Everything in a PDF can be on a layer potentially.
Confusingly, flattening in a PDF can be at least three different things. Flattening layers is really nothing but removing the names of layers. Then there is flattening transparency, and flattening comments.
