    Hello, Has anyone had this issue or know what a workaround is.

    I edit a pdf map. Basically I cut and paste an image of comments I made into the pdf document. Save the file. When I bring the document into Avenza the image of the comments I made do not show up. When you open the pdf map up in Arcobat the comments are there.

    This is a new issue. I have been doing this procedure for a couple of years without this problem.


    Thank you for your post. In order to have any edits show up on the map within Avenza Maps, you need to ensure that you are flattening the document on export from Adobe as any edits create a new layer which is not supported within Avenza Maps. There are a couple of ways that you can flatten this PDF on export:

    1. Advanced > PDF Optimizer or File > Save As > Optimized PDF
    2. You can use a set of tools called Preflight to ensure the document is flattened

    If you have any further questions or problems with this, please reach out to us via and we’d be happy to help further!
