How can I change the background color that backgrounds only some text, in a PDF?

Post by antinatalism » Mon Jan 07, 2019 7:05 am

With vision difficulties, my grandpa can't read text whenever backgrounded by the same dark color in the PDF in the screenshot beneath. Please download it from http://www.mediafire.com/file/1iil649lu ... 9.pdf/file, or see some of its pages at https://books.google.com/books?id=WM8oC ... &q&f=false. It's too unproductive to remove each use of the dark background color one-by-one. Thus how can I, in one brisk stroke?

I've Adobe Acrobat DC Pro, Foxit PhantomPDF, and Nitro Pro. They and SensusAccess converted the PDF to a Word file's that's too deformed. Acrobat states no background to be removed.

Is the color of background always the same? or is it different every time?

Do you... own PitStop? I can't see it in your Adobe Acrobat.

If you do, then it's a simple Action List, of just selecting objects with that particular color and deleting them.

Create a new action list: http://prntscr.com/m4bk01
Add "select color" http://prntscr.com/m4bkai - Type in your color code or select object (with that color) with enfocus "Select objects" tool and press "grab fill" in "select color" action options.
Add "remove selection" http://prntscr.com/m4bkn8 - and that's it, save it and run it.
