Pdf View no openning any pdf files

I have use the pdf viewer in the past with opening attachments of SharePoint list but today I am trying to do it again in a new app. I found that it is just black:
Even with a public document : "https://blog.mozilla.org/security/files/2015/05/HTTPS-FAQ.pdf"

Anyone having this type of issue??

 

Thank you very much

Dan

Hi @DANIEL13,

Do you mean your PDF viewer stops working?

Actually, you are right that the latest version has this issue. 

You should roll back to your older version. 

Open the app as normal. Select Settings, Support and you will see your app version. Below that, there is an Edit link with a pencil icon. From there, you can choose version 3.21081.49 and reload. You must do this every time you want to open.

In a word, open your latest version of the new app and changed version to 3.21081.49 and all is well. 

Best Regards,
Qi

thanks for the information, I was hoping it was something to do with the powerapps but I couldnt find the version selection or anything by myself

So I tried the steps you put and then it does work in Edit Mode but when I save, and publish it goes back to not working. Any ideas?

I am also experiencing this issue, cannot view any pdfs in the viewer, not even the example pdf that gets inserted automatically when adding the component to an app

Hi, workaround with changing PowerApps version works in Edit mode only... How can I release the app with working PDF viewer? Thanks in advance for help.
