Embedding pdfs using the methods described at Tiddlywiki.com / embed pdfs
and other documents doesn't seem to work on Tiddly Desktop. I guess this is
because Desktop doesn't have a pdf renderer?

Sorry for late reply.

If I do drag and drop, I get an Acrobat error & a javascript error.
If I use the canonical uri method (which I'd prefer), I get the same
Acrobat error, but no javascript error.

Acrobat is not the default pdf reader on my system (OSX).

In firefox, the pdf tiddler was blank, but followed these instructions from
Mozilla <http://Acrobat is not the default pdf reader on my system (OSX).>
to fix.

Thinking it must be the Acrobat NPAPI plugin, I removed
*AdobePDFViewerNPAPI.plugin* & *AdobePDFViewer.plugin* from
/Library/Internet Plug-ins/ , but Acrobat error persists in TW Desktop

So I'm still stuck

Thanks, that could be a workaround.

JL,

TiddlyDesktop has its own browser (A branch of code which includes chrome I
believe) which should use the local machines PDF handling. If you can
reinstall your PDF reader it may resolve things.

I tried to replicate this but I need to reboot my computer.

Regards
Tony
