I'd love to have the option to save a "flattened" [no layers] PDF. Is there a way?

If you have Acrobat, or some other pdf printing program, you can print to pdf, then there will be no layers.

Thanks! I'd never used Acrobat but I have access through Creative Cloud so problem solved!

 

For anyone curious, I noticed you can also open your existing PDFs in Acrobat and utilize a "Flatten Layers" option.
