For examined components your PDF files must not include any interactive elements, for example comments, digital signatures, or form fields. If any PDFs contain interactive elements, you must first ‘flatten’ PDFs to remove the interactive elements. This does not alter the content of the PDF. If you upload PDFs with interactive elements for an examined component, you will receive an error message.
The easiest way to flatten a PDF is using the ‘Print PDF’ module in Adobe. You export the file to a printer and save it as a simple PDF with no layers:
Make sure that:
all content is visible and nothing overlaps (one item covering another) for example images, text boxes or shapes.
If a file is larger than the maximum file size, use HandBrake to reduce the file size before uploading it to Submit for Assessment.
Information about preparing documents and using Handbrake is in the Submit for Assessment administrative guide (PDF, 4MB).
