PDF Viewer Dead?

As of some time yesterday, PDF Viewer has just stopped working. It won't display any PDF, just shows page 0/0 if i enable the controls. It functions to some extent because it doesnt display "Couldn't open PDF file" so it must know the path that I give it is valid. It cant even display the SamplePDF default file! Is anyone else seeing this? I have tried 2 different Office 365 tenants and still have no luck. Have also created a completely fresh app that just has a PDF viewer in it, and still nothing.

This issue is not solved. This is a workaround, not a resolution. 

Could we please have an update on when this will be fixed?

Are we looking at days,  weeks or months?

Thank you, we did an update last night and lost the pdfviewer today, and this information helped. However, just now, installing another update, the pdfviewer has loaded in the current recommended version of PA 3.21084.23.

is it still dead? currently working on a doc library with viewer but PDF still not showing up. Any new fix to this? thanks

No, it's working well again. Just use it and it will do the job.

hi @JoepTh , yeah but for some reason mine doesnt. any ideas? my app version is 3.21123.25. not sure if that matters or if that causes it. thanks in advance.



@JoepTh also, seems that its related to our sharepoint site. Any settings I need to check? thanks again
