This issue appears to becoming worse.

Will there be a patch to fix this serious problem?
I can no longer use Adobe Acrobat (see below), Adobe seems to not care and your email brushes this problem off to our IT department.

Is this on all pdf files or just on specific files. First rule of trouble shooting is to isolate the problem. The same file on different computers and the computer with different files lets you determine if it is the file or the computer. Have you dabbled with colour management settings? (a screeenshot would help). In the Print production tool there is also a setting to simulate colour paper, would be good to know if that is checked. 

 

It could happen if there is absolute colour rendering, simulate paper white and your PDF has a colour profile that has a more yellow profile than your screen (note that any print profile will have 5000K as print profile while most monitors and RGB profiles have white point of 6500K). A screen dump Information about the type of Pdf (Pdf-X, Pdf-A etc or better a sample Pdf) and knowing more about your setup, would help. Unfortunately colour issues may also be connected to how you have your operating system and monitor configured.

Whilst this makes it appear white in most zoom levels, some zoom levels show yellow and importantly when printing, it comes out yellow.

 

Any other tips?
