Flatten a PDF
Fillable PDF forms are interactive PDF, which means we can fill out. Fillable forms are very useful and can be used in different ways, such as schools, colleges, pools, companies, etc. But the main disadvantage of interactive PDF is that the file can be edited, which is not good if you don't want them to remain interactive when distributing the file to the audience or online.
Flattening a PDF means eradicating the ability to edit and add values on the file by separating form data and adding it as an image or text, so the PDF file will no longer be interactive. The PDF file still looks the same and can still be opened on different devices, even after conversion.
