    Please be noted that it is required to have the direct URL/direct access to the PDF file to embed using PDF embedder widget.

    The PDF file from the Google Drive can be embedded using the following URL:


    However, the URL from the Scribd is not a direct link to the PDF file and hence it is not displayed.

    Hope this information helps!
