I am using Acrobat pro dc and I am running into a weird problem. Everytime I try to switch out one page of a document with a color page the color page displays as black and white. This is even stranger because when I preview the document the page is color and if I go to organize pages the page displays as color. However when I look at the actual file the page is bw. Does any one know why this is? I am using acrobat pro dc on a MAC
Do you accidentally have any Accessibility options turned on in your preferences? Edit > Preferences > Accessibility > Replace Document Colors?
Replace document colors was the answer I needed! I had previously changed the settings to try to darken some light lines on another file, but by the next time I needed to see a color pdf,I had forgotten about the change.- Thank you!!!!
That did not work ofor me
When the color page is viewed with Output Preview turned on, are there any oddly named spot colors? Perhaps Acrobat can't determine the correct color to display so it appears BW? If this is the case, converting the PDF to 4C process, or one of the PDF/X versions may fix the display issue.
Another possibility occurred to me, if the PDF contains a BW image overprinting a color image, it would appear as BW, unless the Acrobat preference Use Overprint Preview was on.
I had the same problem on Android but I had my layout in night mode. If you turn off night mode, the original colour shows.
