So,

I have an issye where reading black writing on a white background gives me massive headache, and tends to cause more visual disturbances on the page (i.e. shadows of words floating around on the page is not fun). As a student who has to read a lot of journal articles this is....less than ideal.

My question is this: does the PDF reader have any ways i can add a coloured overlay over existing PDF's to make reading them easier?

Hi Kazbrekker,

I apologize for the delay in response.

Have you tried changing background color by launching Reader, navigate to Edit > Preferences > Accessibility > check the box next to 'Replace document colors' > page background, does that help?

Thanks,

Shivam

Hi, I am having issues with this setting. I have changed the page colour and it works on some PDFs, but not on others. Like the OP I cannot read on white backgrounds due to visual issues. Could you please tell me why some PDFs are ignoring the accessibility setting, and others it works? Any how I can resolve this so it applies to all PDFs opened in Acrobat Reader? Thank you 🙂
