I've been using PS for 8 years now and this has to be the most frustrating thing that happens with the program - the psd Ive been working on is flattened. I was saving out my document as a .pdf, and the mistake I think I made was unchecking "Preserve Photopshop editing capabilities". I thought this option would allow the pdf to be reopened and editable in PS; thinking that this would increase the size of the pdf I unchecked the option. Now I have a pdf and a flattened psd. Awesome.
Why is saving pdf different from saving out a jpeg or png? Why would I want to flatten my psd?
Great user experience.
