PDFAnnotationMBS.removeAllAppearanceStreams
Type Topic Plugin Version macOS Windows Linux Console & Web iOS
method PDFKit MBS MacControls Plugin 9.6 Yes No No Yes, macOS only No
Function: All appearance streams for the target annotation are removed.
Notes:
Without an appearance stream, annotations are drawn strictly according to their parameters (color, border, font, etc.). When a PDF is saved, PDF Kit will always write out an appearance stream(s) for each annotation. If the PDF is reloaded, you will need to remove the appearance streams in order to continue to edit the annotations parameters.

Requires Mac OS X 10.5.
