PDF: Viewing patterns in Acrobat 6.0


We have recently upgraded to Acrobat 7.0. We have done a drawing that has a number of pattern fills.

The drawings have been printed using both Acrobat 7.0 and Acrobat 6.0

When viewed and printed from Acrobat 7.0 it looks exactly the same as on the screen, and how we print out.

When viewed in Acrobat 6.0 the dominant colour is all that is visible. IE a pattern comprising yellow and light orange on screen appears as a soft yellow, in Acrobat 6.0 as a stripy yellow.

Is there any way to fix it so it views the same in Acrobat 6.0 and 7.0.

You may want to look at the DPI settings in Acrobat 6 when creating the PDF. Make sure this is set to under 600.
