Is there a setting somewhere that will enable me to see background colors? Anything that is screened behind copy is not visible.
Sorry for the delayed response and inconvenience caused. To check to see what your PDF background color looks like go to Edit > Preferences > Accessibility and check to see if the checkbox Replace Document Colors is on or off.
This and changing the background color by going to Tools > Pages > Background are the only two places that this can be changed within Acrobat.
