Unable to embed a PDF via the web view component

Has anyone successfully embedded a PDF in their app using the web view component? I’ve tried it 4 different ways now, hosting the PDF from

  • Google Drive
  • Dropbox
  • web server
  • converting to HTML and embedding that page

Have not been successful. Here’s what I’m getting: https://www.loom.com/share/5173d0aacdb64dea96e4732935d122e5
Ideas anyone?

Hey @grid7, have you given this a shot? https://en.support.wordpress.com/google-docs/

That solved it. Thank you very much @zachbharris

I used the embed code option vs. the link and then pasted just the embed URL (not the iframe code) into the web view component and it works great. cheers

Got the PDF file in Google Docs to populate the web viewer component in my app…however, I do not have any zoom in/zoom out options in my view. Am I missing a URL parameter? Any advice here? Thanks.
