Added the PDF embedder widget. Gave it a file to point to (one of the pdf's generated by jotform) and installed that int the widget.
I see no pdf displayed in either the preview, or the embedded widget in my website.

After viewing your form, I am seeing that the link to the PDF, is to a local file on your computer/device.
Unfortunately, it is not possible to embed a PDF directly from your local system. The file would have to be stored online and you would use the URL for the file to embed the PDF.
I hope this helps, please inform us if you need further assistance.

Ok, no problem. That was my attempt today.
I have reloaded it with a google drive shareable link. I don't see anything. Should I see it in the viewer?
Here is the new pdf link I gave it:
Thanks again, Deborah

Please take note that the PDF Embedder widget requires the link to the PDF file to be a direct link to the file.
I can see that it was not working on your jotform http://www.jotform.us/form/43624828781161 because the shared link you used coming from google drive is NOT a direct link -- but only a shared viewer link.
Unfortunately, that is a Google drive restriction.
If you can upload the file instead to your own website or to a file sharing website that offers direct link to file from file server, it should work.
Example, I uploaded your file to my personal ftp file server here https://shots.jotform.com/jonathan/shots/Berkeley01_17-15.pdf
and I use the link on the PDF Embedder to my demo jotform http://form.jotformpro.com/form/43637327506962?
As you can see it is working.
Hope this help. Please inform us if you need further assistance.
