What issue do you have?

I'm still unable to view Pdfs in a note. I just switched back to joplin as I prefer it over others I have tried. Wondering what we can do to solve this? Am I doing something wrong?

Similar response to last time.

(1) - How did you create this link? You have a direct link to a file in your resources folder.

When you attached the pdf it should create a link like


Edit the link to look like this.


(2) Use this icon to attach a pdf to a note. Do NOT select a pdf that is already in your resources folder.

See if they display.

It doesn't seem to work for all PDFs. I got it working after toggling the editor and changing the layout. For the pdf it does work for, it's a pretty tiny window, any way to increase this?
