Is there a way to retrieve form field values after a document has been flattened? The act of signing a PDF through AdobeSign flattens it to prevent further edits, which appears to remove all field instances when loaded as an Aspose.PDF. There is no option to disable this in AdobeSign’s settings.
With the fields gone, I only have text fragments of the user’s answers with no mapping to the fields I had created before the document was flattened.
Is comparing Rect coordinates between text fragments the only way to associate textual field values with the original field questions? Without Fields, I also have no “partial names” to map values to.
