    My PDF Embedder widget for my "Proof Test Form" is suppose to display a pdf when I insert a url link to the pdf that I want to display.  I have uploaded the pdf to my Google Drive account and got a shareable link.  I put the shared link in the wizzard and the pdf file DOES NOT DISPLAY.  Please help!


    Thank you.

    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
