How to flatten (remove interactive fields) from a PromoMats document?
Some documents contain interactive fields (for example links) that may not be fully integrated into the document and can cause problems. Additionally, it may prevent the system from being able to correctly open the materials.

- Select Print.
- Select either the option of Adobe PDF, Microsoft Print to PDF, or Microsoft XPS Document Writer from the Printer drop-down menu.
- Click Print.
- A Save As window appears to save the document locally.
- Once saved, right-click on the name to choose to Convert to PDF.
- The saved PDF can be then uploaded in PromoMats.
