How to remove layers from PDF file in acrobat?
I have large techical drawing PDF with a lot of layers. But i need only three of these to open in Illustrator. How to delete layers from layer panel in Acrobat Pro XI?
Alternatively, there's a few entries in PDF fixups (Production/Preflight) to Remove Layers; the best for your question is this:
View > Tools > Print Production (Open) Hit Preflight Under the Profiles tab (top left), hit the little spanner/wrench icon in the top row. Double click [Remove layer with specified name] You'll be prompted for the name of the layer you wish to delete, and then a location to save your new PDF.
