Can Preview (mac) alter the background and text colors of pdfs?

Adobe Acrobat Reader allows you to alter the background and text colors of pdf - either to preset 'high contrast' colors or your own choices - and this makes reading onscreen much easier.

That feature does not appear to be implemented in Preview.

changing the text and background color of a document is not supported in preview. however, you can change the background of the window (grey by default) through preferences -> general -> window background. additionally, you can try using the quartz filter to improve your reading experience, accessed through save as... -> quartz filter.
