I would like to try and improve the readability of PDFs in Acrobat DC by changing the Display Theme from Light to Dark Gray. However the View Menu > Display Theme option is missing? I've tried running updates but there were none available.

Ideas anyone? If this the wrong forum please direct me to the correct forum.

The classic track WORKS LIKE older versions. You buy a permanent license (or upgrade). You get the software as it is released. There may be bug fixes. After a year or to there will be new features and you can choose to buy an upgrade.By contrast, the CONTINUOUS version updates regularly and continuously in small bits. Eventually, we imagine, the classic will catch up on a paid upgrade.  You get the continuous version if you subscribe.

Bernd, Classic track? Please forgive the question but we are using Acrobat DC. I thought “classic” was versions 11 and previous? How did you know by the version number that it was in the classic track?

Thank you for the answer. I was also able to find supporting information at https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/release-note/release-notes-acrobat-reader.html

Who knew. Dual licensing tracks.

I'm a little confused also. My version of Acrobat DC seems to be up to date (according to the CC installer) and yet I seem to be missing the Display Theme menu item. What am I doing wrong?
