No longer can view pdfs on mobile?

Has anyone tried to view a pdf on mobile lately? 

Both android and ios would either view or download pdfs. Now I get a message that preview isn't available. 

Can others confirm?

  • By the way, can view when using a mobile web browser, but suddenly stopped working when using the app.

      Hi Mike,

      I just tried on a couple pdf's and a jpg and they all worked for me. 

      Good luck,

        Jim,

        I realized that I can still view files if clicking on the file from the file attachment field. However, I use rich text links in many instances to link to the file. These have stopped working. I am experimenting to see if there is another way to write the rich text code to make it work. If you are able to test with a link, please let me know. If it works, let me know what coding you use for your link.

        This coding is currently not working anymore:

        "<a href='"& URLRoot()&"up/"&Dbid()&"/a/r"&[Record ID#] & "/e6/v0' target='_blank' >" & [File Field] & "</a>"
