Exporting a Map to PDF: Is there an Option to Disable Layers Function?

April 09 2008 | 0 comments

When exporting a map to PDF in ArcMap 9.2 is it possible to disable the layers function? While this is a nice function and has its benefits it certainly increases the file size. Any thoughts? Note, I have service pack 5 installed on my machine.

Bug: Cannot disable PDF layer support for PDFs exported from ArcMap

This is a known limitation. For users of ArcGIS 9.2 prior to Service Pack 5, you need to create Group Layers. For post-SP5, read the instructions on the article noted above.
