    My PDF looks different in Acrobat DC vs Acrobat Reader and Mac Preview


      It's been few days that when I export my PDFs from InDesign, the file look different in Acrobat DC. They look fine in Mac Preview or Acrobat Reader. The problem is, some colours disappear from the screen. Even when I check the channels on Production > Output Preview there is nothing in the file. As mentioned, everything look similar to InDesign. There is no spot or RGB to conflict the channels. Also, all layers are active.

      My InDesign is CC 2015 build - I've also tried InDesign CC 2014

      My Acrobat is Pro DC 2015.020.20042

      The colour profile on export are either sRGB IEC... and US Web Coated (SWOP) V2 - both the very same result.


      I am pretty sure there is nothing wrong with the PDF as the print sample look ok. What ever it is, Acrobat DC's fault!


      Please help if you have any idea or similar situation.
