quickly solve an issue I am having with active forms. I tried using the flatten
feature in the action wizard but it is not working. I also tried using
"this.flattenPages()" but I can still edit the fields in my PDF file.
PDF file using the PDF printer and overwrite the active form so it is
finalized. Maybe there is an easier more efficient way to accomplish this? Any
input or help would be much appreciated. I am using Adobe Acrobat XI
P.S. I realize I can manually selected the Adobe PDF printer and finalize my
active form that way but I am looking for a one click solution.
Have you seen these?

Thank you for your prompt reply. One very important thing I forgot to mention these files are secured so the optimize PDF option is greyed out for me. I think my only option is to save the PDF file as a new file by using the Adobe PDF printer.
