Flattening Annotated File


Hi GroupDocs,

After annotating a document/image, is there a way to flatten the file such that the annotations cannot be removed by users after downloading the annotated file?




Are you looking this feature for .NET or Java platform?


in .NET platform



We are investigating this scenario. Your investigation ticket ID is ANNOTATIONNET-1144. As there is any further update, you’ll be notified.



Please note that this could not be implemented for multiple annotations or several types of annotations.
This could be investigated for few annotations. Can you please confirm, for what document and annotation types (more specifically) you need this functionality?
