Re: PDF Viewer: invalid pdf structure

Hi Karlkeegan,

 

I tested with OneDrive and Dropdown box, but I got the result with “Invalid PDF structure”. So I guess that the PDF files saved in OneDrive and Dropdown box are not supported.

 

Best regards,

Re: PDF Viewer: invalid pdf structure

Hi Karl,

 

It looks like most of the services don't provide direct access to the file when sharing them through links. I did find some documentation on how to get that direct link in Dropbox. You need to add ?dl=1 at the end of the url. Here is a reference to the help article: https://www.dropbox.com/en/help/201

 

Hope that works for you - I tried and it does the trick.

 

Best regards,

Irina

Re: PDF Viewer: invalid pdf structure

Hi Karlkeegan 

 

I had this issue before and what fixed it for me is making sure the permission is set to public. Powerapps won't show pdf's that is not on a public location or open to the public. I placed my pdf on my onedrive and changed the permission settings. 

 

Hope this helps

Re: PDF Viewer: invalid pdf structure

Dropbox usually gives your a public link to a file with "dl=0" parametr in the end, if you change it to "raw=1" you'll get a raw file which will be accessible without any autorisation. The problem is that even this type of link doesn't work in PDF control
