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.

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.

Still checking around.... and from I'm seeing, it looks like Acrobat won't let you. However, Nuance Power PDF will (using built in feature). I'd say download a 30 day trial and test for yourself. Otherwise you may need to print the file to PDF.

Have you tried printing to PDF? I'm not a computer right now and can't check, but that might flatten everything if the correct settings are applied.
If the default settings don't work, try rendering it when printing to PDF.
