How to find out the settings used in a pdf?

Long shot anyone's awake now, but I've been given an Id file to make amends and then make new pdf, trouble is my amended pdf looks way darker than the original pdf.

The colour in the un-amended pdf look very bright and crisp - The colours in my amended version looks very dull in comparison!!

Is it possible to extract pdf settings data or to check if the pdf is RGB?

Thanks!

Actually I think I sorted it - During print export don't colour convert and don't include profiles :)

No way to know.

A few things could be happening.
Opening th in design file for starters could cause a shift in colour profiles.
Unlikely but can happen depending 9n your settings.

Best bet is to use pdf4xa and no colour conversion.

Acrobat has got an Object Inspector tool you might get some clues from that. But again unlikely.

Probably just have to mess about with it.
