Flatten PDF - looses images

Hi
I’m trying to flatten a PDF. But the saved PDF does not contain the images , contained in the original.
Any idea what is wrong?

        // Open document
        Document doc = new Document("C:\\Before.pdf");

        doc.Form.Type = Aspose.Pdf.Forms.FormType.Standard;

        doc.Save("C:\\After.pdf.PDF");

@jon_elster_i3intel_com

In your original post, you mentioned that you were trying to flatten the PDF document. We used the below code snippet for flattening and did not notice any issue as images were intact in the output document:

var doc = new Document(dataDir + "MFO-2105 RUATAN ST1-Before.pdf");
doc.Flatten();
doc.Save(dataDir + "Flattened.pdf");

Flattened.pdf (4.7 MB)

On the other hand, we did notice that the image was absent when converted dynamic XFA to Standard AcroForms. So, an issue as PDFNET-49682 has been logged in our issue tracking system for the sake of correction. We will look into its details and let you know as soon as it is rectified. Please be patient and give us some time.

We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Doesn’t work… I get the following. Any ideas? Thx
