    exporting pdf shows all the .ai layers when flipping through pages

      I'm building complicated illustrator files with vector and placed images and saving them as .ai files. Then I place then into my indesign file and export

      into a multiple page PDF.

       

      Unfortunately when I view the PDF, instead of just showing one flat image of the finished file, when I flip through pages it shows every layer until it finally loads. This is a very quick thing, but it is verydistracting when showing clients a pdf and they see every layer loading instead of just the flat file.

       

      I would prefer not exporting the ai files into a jpeg first then placing into indesign in order the flatten. Is there an easier way?

       

      Thanks!
