I have a pdf with yellow drawings and text on it. If I print in color or grayscale it is too dim to read. The older versions of acrobat had an option to print in black and white only. Does the newest version have this option? Where is it?

That option (Windows only) is no more available. Printing in Acrobat X: Color as Black or Greyscale - YouTube .

At least I don't see it any more.

You might be able to use a preflight profile to map the yellow color to black. Using the Output Preview tool in Acrobat, can you determine the yellow color? For this example, let's say it's 0,0,100,0. Go to Tools> Print Production> Preflight and click on the Fixup tool (blue wrench icon). Find the preflight Map color with specified color values. In the upper right corner of the Preflight panel, click on Options and select Duplicate Fixup (you need to duplicate it in order to unlock it and make your edits). Give it a new name and description and change the settings to match the attached screen shot*. Select the new profile and click on Fix at the bottom right corner of the panel.

*Adjust the settings to match the yellow color in your PDF. The yellow may be RGB, in which case you would select RGB in the new profile and use RGB values.

If the yellow drawings are images (raster) select apply to: Images, instead of vector. If both, make two profiles and use the Action wizard to run both profiles.
