Final Verdict on Previewing PDFs in Cards


I'm new to Trello and trying to get some clarification on whether attached PDFs are able to be previewed within cards (without directly clicking on them, i.e., just an image preview of the first page of the PDF).

I run a lab and a typical part of manuscript preparation workflow is citing / viewing research articles which are often in PDF format. Every attempt at attaching a PDF to a card just results in it showing its attached with the paperclip icon. Even after clicking on the card the attachments just sometimes show 'pdf' for the image preview. The filenames of the papers are often not informative so it would be really helpful if they showed up as proper previews.

Is this supposed to work or not? I've tried in the standalone apps (multiple OSs) as well as multiple web browsers with the same outcome.
