I try to flatten an Inc annotation in a PDF document but it won't flatten. The same with a popup annotation. Is this a bug or not implemented in the current release?

I'm using version v14.4.0.15

Hi Bert,
Thank you for using Syncfusion products,
1. We do have support for flattening ink annotation in the PDF document. We have created a sample to demonstrate this, please get the sample from the below link,
2. At present, we don’t have support to flatten popup annotation. we have already logged the feature request in our database, and we will let you know once we implemented this feature. 
Please let us know if you need further assistance.

It seems to be working in the WindowsForms application but not in an UWP appliction. CAn that be the thing?

I added these lines in the demo project "Syncfusion.SampleBrowser.UWP.Pdf" in the AnnotationFlatten.xaml.cs and there it won't flatten. 

See attachment :)

List<float> linePoints = new List<float> { 40, 300, 60, 100, 40, 50, 40, 300 };
            //Creates a new ink annotation
            RectangleF rectangle = new RectangleF(0, 0, 300, 400);
            PdfInkAnnotation inkAnnotation = new PdfInkAnnotation(rectangle, linePoints);
            inkAnnotation.Color = new PdfColor(System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(255, 255, 0, 0));

Ok, is it something that will be fixed in the coming release? For us it's a show stopper that this doesn't work.

Hi Bert,

We do not have any immediate plans to implement the flattening support for Ink and Popup annotation in UWP platform. We will let you know once we have implemented this feature.
