Adobe Acrobat tool to flatten form fields & digital signatures

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.

ASKER

Acrobat 10 and 11.
Have you taken a look here? http://www.pdfscripting.com/public/Free_Acrobat_Automation_Tools.cfm

I could not tell you off the top whether it will flatten with the signatures, which I know is a key requirement for you. But feel free to give it a shot.
Thank you masnrock. Part of my script came from the Flatten Page Content Tool on located on the pdfscripting.com web site. I just need to add script to flatten digital signatures.
