Hi All, I accidentally pressed some random keys on my keyboard while I had a PDF document open, since then all documents I open in Adobe Acrobat/Reader has this checkerboard pixelated background (please see image uploaded) which makes the document very difficult to read. Please advise how to remove this checkerboard pixelated background, thanks! Sample PDF.jpg
