How can I change the color of the pages in a PDF to white text on black background so they would be easier for me to see

Hello Dr. Irwin,

This can be accomplished by enabling our accessibility option "override document colors" from the preferences (Ctrl+K).

This will change how the document appears to you, without actually changing the document itself.

If you instead wish to modify the document, you would need to manually change the color of every text object to white using the Edit > text tool, and then apply a black "background" to the document via the Organize > Backgrounds tool.

Kind regards,

Hi Daniel

is there a button / a function to switch quick between "coloured / black-white"?

Hi Peter,

Ctrl + Shift + 6 is the default shortcut key combination for toggling the accessibility mode on or off.

Regards,
Stefan
