I'm failry new to indesign so forgive me if it's anovice question. I'm trying to export a file as an interactive PDF, but everytime I do so, the objectes I intentionally made gray become white when it opens as a PDF. I published it online (just to see how the publishing feature works). In that format, the file is exactly how I want it. But I can't find it? Where do I access the documents that are "published" online?

Hello @Hee-Dee5ECC,

 

Colour is a tricky one. There are so many things that can influence how colours are represented. So a couple of quick questions to help narrow this down.

  1. What are you viewing the PDF in? is it adobe acrobat or something else?
  2. What was your original colour space CMYK or RGB?
    1. If RGB what colour profile was it using?
