"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I can, using another PDF Reader which has the BW option, then print through another PDF printer.
One downside, everything gets converted to shapes (so editing text isn't possible anymore). It also means the file is bigger than expected)

Kimputer, there are no fields in the b/w PDF. I think rjef wants the form fields to be left functional.

The problem also is that the form is rights enabled, so there are additional steps needed:

First Save a copy of the File in Acrobat Pro using the Save as Copy command

Then print the saved file to Adobe PDF printer using B/W and custom size options to a new file

Call that FedEx-BOL bw.pdf.

Then use the Organize Pages tools to replace the page 1of the copy file with page 1 of the bw file.

Check that fields align and then File>Save as Other> More... to reenable User rights.

See attached.
