    Posted: 19 Jan 2012 at 10:36pm
Using Acrobat Pro Extended. It's now at 9.4.7 after an update a week or so ago.

Only today when I tried to reprint a PDF -- Printing to PDF from an existing PDF file -- I
noticed the color definitions changed all my nice, bright RGB colors to CMYK.

I'm going to look for a fix myself, but maybe there's a simpler question to ask:

Is there a Printer Definition available that automatically converts CMYK to RGB?

I need the Bright RGB BLUE for a company logo, and the document I'm working on
is going to be seen mostly in electronic format.

More Info than May Be Pertinent or Necessary
:
Tech NOTES: I'm Win 7, 64-bit. The original format of the printed document was a
WORD file I "saved to PDF" in order to keep the auto bookmark output for Headings
1 and 2. I know, "saved to PDF" from WORD files can be a little quirky. Which is why
I wanted to re-print that PDF. (Am I caught in some nightmare swamp of WORD-embedded
loopiness? Is this related to the recent Acrobat Pro Extended update -- I've done this
same thing before, and never seen colors change when using the "Standard" -- or the
"High Quality Output" -- options.)

What are your settings in the Printer ADVANCED dialog under Color Management?

Do you mean Advanced > Print Production > Convert Colors....?

That looks like it's set to U.S. Web Coated (SWOP) v2.
At two places, 'matching criteria' in the middle of the window, and
'output intent' below that. The 3rd section only gives preserve/convert
CMYK options.

Hmmmmm.....

Can I or should I change both of those other two to Adobe RGB?

How does one reset that default, to keep the changes after you
exit and restart?

No, I mean the options under the Advanced button in the print dialog. There is a good chance that you are converting colours because you are asking to when you print...

The Settings window at top left just shows, "Acrobat Default"

It worked, I reset the Advanced > Print Production > Color Converter pull down
and reset what I found there -- US Web Coated (SWOP) v 2 -- to Adobe RGB,
in both places.

I went back to the same Word-derived file and printed to PDF. Bookmarks
disappeared, but it's a good Acrobat file now, and I can extract pages.
Nice, crisp web colors.

(When I tried that earlier, with the original Word-derived PDF, I'd always
get a "bad parameter" fail message.)
