PowerApps PDF Viewer refresh issues

Hi there, 

I have an info screen on my app (which is another page) 

and i have an PDF View on there pointing to a Sharepoint list (with an power automate in the middle). 

No matter what i do I cannot get the viewer to default the page to 1 , so if a user beforehand read a little bit of the document, the next user would only see from where the last use left off. 


I have tried to get the document url from look up on a sharepoint list (to make it more fluid) - it still defaults to where it left off

Change the Page setting on the component to 1 and it still shows page 2 (or at the bottom of page 1 if thats where the user left it). 

I have been playing with OnStateChange and that just tells me where the pdf is at, but i cannot push page 1 to this nor can i push page 1 to the current page , maybe through a context variable etc. 


Is there no way to refresh the PDF on reload ? I am looking at blog posts from 2017 and they had the problem and I am getting the problem is 2021 - oh man !!! 


anybody with any advice out there ?
