How to make annotations visible after printing or sending PDF via email?

I filled out a form including two signatures and saved it to iCloud Drive. When I print the form, all these fields are empty.

Answer:

To keep all the changes in PDF file, there is an option to save your file as 'Flattened Copy'. Flattening is a process of applying all annotations, form data and markups to a PDF. No changes can be made to annotations or form data after the flattening. To save your documents as Flattened copy please click 'File' in the main menu on the top bar > select 'Save as Flatten..'. You can also send the file out via email as a flattened copy - for this, click 'Share' next to the search bar > select 'Mail as Flatten..'.
