Can PDF Alchemist convert PDF forms to flattened, non-interactive HTML instead of HTML forms?

PDF Alchemist can convert PDF form documents into flattened documents. In this case the interactive features of form fields are removed, so the content shown in the form fields becomes a fixed part of the document. Users may no longer change the information shown on the original PDF document.

Use the disableAcroform option with the PDF Alchemist SDK or the -flattenForms command line statement, set to True. The appearance of the form will be defined in the appearance streams of the input PDF.
