How to launch a document from Dataverse in PowerApps?

Is it possible to build functionality that can link or display a document that is stored in the documents table from dataverse in PowerApps? 


I have a gallery that is filtered down to documents to a certain object via its ID (GUID) link between each other. These documents have a file, file type and name stored against them in their record. Is it possible to be able to launch these from within the App so that users can see them from the frontend of the application? 


This would be a great feature and if not currently possible I'll probably post it as a suggestion for a new feature.

I have tried the Launch() function with many different properties and nothing happens when they are clicked. 

I am also experimenting with the PDF viewer but I always get an error that says the PDF is corrupted or invalid. 

In PDF you need to use a Flow... I was trying to find the flow but I can't

I am thinking now not to use the PDF viewer. Instead I am trying to see if I can get the Download() function to work with some string manipulation on the Document File property to enable it  to launch and download correctly
