Q: I created some layers in a PDF document that I no longer need, how can I delete these layers in PDF Studio?

A: As of version 2019, PDF Studio is not able to delete existing layers in a PDF, though this feature will soon be implemented and added to a future version.

For now, as a workaround, you can follow the steps below. The process consists in creating a new PDF and appending your layered PDF. This process will remove any layers present in the document.

  1. Create a new PDF under File > Create > New Document
  2. Go to Pages -> Insert -> Append Document
    append-document
  3. Browse to and select your layered PDF
  4. Delete the blank page (page 1) that was added when creating the new PDF in step 1
