PDF viewer not working in latest update


We are currently using PowerApps version 3.19081.20 for an app that displays PDF:s stored on Sharepoint using a flow. Whenever we try to re-publish the app which makes it update(currently to 3.19084.12) the PDFViewer stops working and just says that the PDF can't be showed. Clicking the link that shows the PDF in browser works and shows the correct PDF. The PDFViewer doesn't work for version 3.19082.20 or 3.19083.21 neither. My question is what is causing this? And is there a way to force PowerApps to not update while saving changes and re-publishing?

Thank you for time!

Re: PDF viewer not working in latest update

Hi @Adamh ,

I've made a similar test and found that PDF viewer works good in my powerapps. My powerapps version is 3.19084.12.

The problem that you have I think is about the PowerApps version is a little stale. 

For now, unless you find PowerApps version 3.19081.20's website and edit your app in this version.

There's no way to republish app in previous version of PowerApps.

It will automatically saved in the latest version of PowerApps.

I suggest  you recreate your app in the latest version of PowerApps.

Or you could also ask for help here:
