No, after using "flatten" in PDFTK, the FDF content
is embedded into the PDF file. For this reason,
all interactive fields are not editable anymore.

Does anyone try this command in MacOSX?
I tested PDFTK in Windows and Ubuntu
and this works fine:

pdftk.exe C:\PDFwithForms.pdf fill_form C:\data.fdf output
FilledPDF.pdf flatten

There are many samples of PDF and matching FDF files inside
these compressed folders from Adobe:

By the way, PDFTK Pro version is only 4 dollars.
Dr. Hawkins, Could you include a Pro license
of PDFTK with each copy of your software?
This would cover all your present and future
uses of PDF in your own software.
