Prevent Combining Geospatial PDFs from Flattening Objects
I am able to select/interact with the geospatial data in my individual Geospatial PDFs using the Object Data Tool. But once I combine 2 or more of the Geospatial PDFs, using the Combine Files tool in Adobe Acrobat Pro DC, the Object Data Tool no longer works and I can't interact with the underlying data anymore.
I called Adobe Customer Service about this issue and they said that the Combine File tool was flattening out the objects in the PDF resulting in me loosing access to the geospatial capabilities. Can Adobe fix this in the next update?
I've attached 2 PDF files, "AdobeTest1" is a single Geospatial PDF and works correctly when using the Object Data Tool. While "AdobeTest_Combined" is a PDF that contains 2 PDF files that were combined using the Combine Files tool and I'm not able to access the geospatial data using the Object Data Tool.
