Processing Instructions (rev. 04/2013):
NOTE: To prevent serious document image quality issues, all files saved using Adobe Professional version 10 or higher must be "flattened" before filing through CM/ECF. Flattening a PDF file removes the interactive capability of the document created in Adobe Professional version 10 or higher and may also reduce the PDF file size by up to 90%.
Instructions to Flatten a PDF document:
- In the Print feature, select Adobe PDF from the Printer drop-down menu.
- Click Print.
- Navigate to desired folder on your computer and click Save.
- Upload the document into CM/ECF when prompted during the electronic filing process.
