(O/T PDF Background color)

Hi,

I would suggest not changing the background to black (makes printing
very painful), but doing one of two things:

1. When you print, change the properties on Adobe Writer to Black &
White rather than color. You end up with some grays, but this is pretty
much what we do.

2. Select all the objects and change them to white. From the command
prompt: Change...Select Objects...P(roperties)...C(olor)...W(hite)
This has disadvantages in that not everything is changed (leaders
aren't) and everything pretty much loses line weights, but it also works.

Hope this is helpful

Sorry for the off topic post, I am sure there's an easy answer that is
eluded me.

Engineering is working in AutoCAD using black background colors and then
using high contrasting colors i.e. yellow. When I convert the drawings
to PDF format using either Adobe printer, or PDF-Creator they show up
on a white background making the yellow impossible to read. I need to
send PDF's to customers changing desktop settings is not an option. Is
it possible to save PDF files with a black background?

Thanks,
