    Hi Henry,

    The URL of the PDF source is not allowing the embedded file to display. You need to get a public view link of the PDF file in your google drive account.


    I test using the PDF widget on my form https://www.jotform.com/63310374525955 using my own hosted file and it work just fine.


    Make sure the pdf file is correctly shared.

    Let us know if still not working
