I changed the background colour of my pdf through:
Document Setup -> changing color under “transparency” (grid color) -> checking “Simulate Colored Paper”
This changes the background in Illustrator as it should.
The problem is: if I save the file as a pdf, the background if my pdf is white again 🙁
Any idea how to solve this problem? Many thanks in advance!
As it should. If you’d end up with a coloured background in the *.pdf and printed it on the coloured paper, the coloured paper would get a coloured background printed on it, for twice the colour value.
Changing your backgrond colour is as easy as drawing a large rectangle behind your work in the correct colour and, preferably, locking it.
