Hi @Gerry2411 :

Could you please consider providing detailed setup steps and some screenshots?

Best Regards,


Hi, so if i click on a folder with the article nummer 1000254 and click on a file it is shown on the pdf viewer.

If i go back to a different folder, the first pdf shown is the one i opened the last.

Hi @Gerry2411 :

Could you show me some settings? For example, what is the PDF viewer's Document property?

Maybe you could set it to:


Best Regards,


yes, i can show you my settings. The property the pdf viewers document is:


With({fileextension:Last(Split(Galerie.Selected.'Dateiname mit Erweiterung';".")).Result};If(fileextension="pdf";varPdf.pdfcontent;Substitute(Galerie.Selected.Miniaturansicht.Small;"/thumbnail";"/pdf")))
