I am scanning thousands of pages to PDF. I have learned how to convert these PDFs (in Acrobat itself) files to total Grayscale (please applaud, everyone!) But this is not enough. I want them just black and white. Yea 2 colors, Adobe!!!!!! The text should be converted to black and the scanned background should be white. That's it, nothing more or less.
