Confluence - Embedded PDF won't display PNG files

I have just started using Confluence, so please forgive my newness.

I imported a wide variety of PDFs. Any images contained in the PDF itself that are PNGs are not displayed at all in the Confluence viewer. The images render fine in every other PDF viewer, but not in Confluence. Anyone know if this is a known issue and if it is being addressed?

Hoping to use Confluence as a knowledge base, but this is a showstopper for uploading existing PDF documents for our support folks.

Hi Cody,

We indeed have some open bugs about PDF rendering, you can take a look at the open bugs here.

Best regards,

Hi Felipe, 

We can't .png images in PDF docs either. When I click on the link in your answer to Cody not bugs display. Could you send another link?



Sorry for the missing words in my previous comment. What I meant to say was that when I export from Confluence to PDF, the .png images don't appear. When I click on the link to see open bugs in your answer to Cody, no bugs display. Can you send another link?
