Flatten annotations.
Draws all annotations according to the used flags on the corresponding pages and deletes the annotations when finish. The flatten flags can be combined. The flag MarkupAnnots causes that non-markup annotations will be left intact (all kind of link, sound, and file attach annotations).

The function flattens only annotations which contain an appearance stream. The function does not create missing appearances on demand.

If the function succeeds the return value is the number of annotations which are still in memory.
