Adobe Acrobat, a Portable Document Format (PDF) writing program, has a variety of PDF editing features in addition to creating PDF files. Depending on how you like to view documents, you might find it easier to change some of the PDF colours to make it easier to view or read. You can invert the PDF display colours, such as changing white to black by following a few steps.
