PDF embeds display blurry, or not at all.

We're trying to create a page that has 10-20 .PDF's attached that the user can scroll through looking at thumbnails of each to find the one they need.

When I use the "Insert Files & Images" it displays, but its very blurry and unreadable

When I use the PDF macro, it's just blank.

Any suggestions?

Hi @Nick_Williams  

couldn't see your image but made similar experiences you're talking about. Images&Files makes PDFs very blurry. PDF macro is a bit tricky, too. 

We are using Link Preview for Confluence a free app for Server you can define with different settings. Hovering the image you get the defined range (for example PDF). It works for us. 

Hope I could help.

Nice. This may work.

Do you know if it has the ability to always display the preview, without having to pass the mouse over the link? We'd like to display several on a page at once.

Hi @Nick_Williams - not sure - you can probably get this in the settings. Our solution is using blurry preview with a short description. User can than use mouse over and scroll through the whole pdf in a great solution.

This makes it possible to show round about 7 pdfs on one page (or even more) - when user is interested it's possible to check out for more without clicking.
