    Spot colors not displaying in Acrobat DC

    abdennis13 Level 1

      Mac OS 10.10

      I have an InDesign CS5 document with a spot color background.

      When I export to PDF (PDF/X1a) and open the file in Acrobat DC, there is no background color (the separations preview shows there is a spot color in the document, but does not display any ink for this color)

      If I open the PDF in Acrobat 9 or X, the background color displays correctly.

       

      Is there a setting in Acrobat DC I don't know about? Do I need to use a different export setting (I've tried several to no avail).

       

      Thanks!
