I have an Adobe Acrobat tool that currently flattens a PDF and removes fillable form fields. But I am looking for a solution that will also flatten the PDF if it contains a digital signature (at the same time).

At this time, if I try to flatten a PDF that contains a digital signature, I get a warning message: Security settings or digital signatures in this file prevent flattening.

Below is attached JavaScript code (make sure to remove the .txt). I am seeking the assistance of adding code to allow the flattening of the PDF if it contains a digital signature. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your time and assistance.
