> Thanks for the excellent PDF library.   For my use case I need to flatten a 
> subset of the AcroForm fields.  I was attempting to use the 
> PDAcroForm.flatten call, passing in my field list.  However, after the method 
> is called, all the fields are gone.  
> The method itself appears to remove all PDFAnnotationWidgets from each page 
> and at the end clears the acroform's field set.
> Is the javadoc description (This will flatten the specified form fields.) 
> just misleading?   Could a flatten call for a subset of fields be added?
> Thanks
