I have included a PDF file in my document using


This works fine, except document.pdf has form fields which are filled out (and the document has been saved) and those are left blank in my output PDF.

(When I open document_to_include.pdf in any PDf viewer, the form fields are filled out.)

Any Chance of having them rendered in the output PDF?

I have used Mac OS's print->save-as-pdf function to render it again.

While the document now beeing no longer a editable PDF-form, the filled out fields are now included and rendered correctly.

Still wondering if you could include PDF Forms and having filled out fields rendered...
