Merge or flatten layers

Merged layers acquire the properties of the layer into which they are merged (the target layer). Flattening PDF layers hides any content that is not visible when the flattening operation is executed and consolidates all layers.

Important: You cannot undo either a merging or a flattening operation.

  1. Click the Layers button, and select Merge Layers from the options menu .
  2. In the Layers To Be Merged pane, select one or more layers, and click Add.
  3. To remove a layer from the center panel, select one or more layers, and click Remove.
  4. In the Target Layer To Merge Into pane, select the layer into which to merge the selected layers.
