Unfortunately, your version of Acrobat is quite old. I believe Acrobat 8 was replaced by version 9 in 2008. I mention this because I would normally try to recreate someone's issue like yours to see if I can duplicate it and find a solution. But in the software world, ten years is an eternity, and older software tends to become less, or incompatible with more modern operating systems. On what O.S. is this Acrobat installation?
That said, maybe try a different font or font color for your Header/Footer entries to see if you get a different result. If I can find a solution, I'll be happy to share.
Thanks very much for your reply.
My operating system is Windows 10.
I have tried out a few things, to no avail:
Using a different font in the original. (From Arial to Calibri)
Using a different colour in the original
Using a different font in the header.
Using a different colour in the header.
I can get round the issue by going to the original document, selecting all elements on the page and grouping them before exporting to PDF. This hides the fact that the coloured bit it is text and stops it going black. This will work but will have to be done individually on all 210 pages.
I take your point about very old software. It just grieves me to essentially hire an expensive program when I have something that (I thought) still works, and when I make minimal use of it.
Once again, many hanks
