PDF open in extern editor

Hi there, I'm using the official TRELLO Desktop app on macOS. Is there a way to open attached PDF in an extern PDF Editor, like Acrbat DC or PDF Expert? 

THX a lot.

Hi Bernd,


In order to open a PDF attachment in an external editor, you will first need to save the PDF to your computer.


You will then be able to open the resulting file in any program you would like!

Hi and thanks for your answer, 

but there is no way to save the attachment to computer directly. Look at the screenshot. 
Of couse, I can open die PDF in browser and download it, but this is workaround :-( 

BTW: This "workaround" is not sexy. Is there a way to open PDFs directly form trello app in external Editor by using a plugin oder trello gold?
