While not totally crazy nor the optimal way to proceed, but it certainly is 
possible, and very easy.

You don't say which version of FM you're using, but in FM 7.2 it is the last 
entry on the "Special" menu - Remove Structure from Flow

I would save the resulting 'flat file' to a different name so you may continue 
to develop the structured version, and if necessary flatten it again to update 
the TOC, Index, etc.
