in reply to converting pdf form to pdf document

Just a quick glance at the CAM-PDF examples, especially rewritepdf.pl, shows an option

-C --clearannots remove all annotations (including forms)
I don't know if that will do the trick, but you might want to look at the examples. The man pages also talk about $self->clearFormFieldTriggers(fieldname, fieldname, ...)

    Hi,

    Thanks very much for your input - you were bang on the money!

    I've annotated the code in the OP for clarity.

    The only reservation I have is that in one set of form fields the input text is right justified whereas that is ignored on using the clearannots, leaving the layout slightly deficient. I suppose that the right justification is in itself an annotation - can I exempt it?

    Cheers.
