Feature Preview: Night Mode

A pretty common customer ask has been for us to implement a “Night Mode”, to make reading documents in dark places easier…both on your eyes and on the people around you. So we’ve added a Night Mode which inverts black and white. This viewing mode helps to reduce eye strain, and can even extend your battery because your device won’t need to light up as many pixels on your display.

This will be coming in an update for iOS and Android soon, and will make it to other mobile platforms as soon as we can fit it in.

    Can this feature be added to Acrobat Reader and Acrobat Pro as well? I read many more documents on my computer at work than on my phone and would greatly appreciate Night Mode.

    I agree with having night-mode on computers. It would be very useful.

    Go to the Preferences > Accessibility >
    And then enable “Replace Document Colors”, then “Use High-Contrast Colors”.

    I believe it should work for all newer versions.

    “Adobe Acrobat X Pro”

    Yes please, Night mode for my desktop. That would be a dream.

    Night mode on capable .pdf’s?/ Nothing yet, huh>?
    Should be standard on desktop versionof Reader. Other formats, like epub. Firefox has an epub add-on and night reader apps. So it’s past time.
    Another nice thing (again, on actual text pdfs) for mobile, would be to have text wrapping at the display’s edge and the ability to adjust fonts larger than you can now. like one can on numerous free apps for android.
