Hi All,

We've made the following Bootstrap object featuring 3 embedded PDFs: xerte.uwe.ac.uk/play.php?template_id=994

Can you see the PDFs on your mobile? On our Android mobiles, my colleague and I only see a blank space. I've attached a screenshot from my mobile...

Thanks in advance to anyone able to take a peek...

Best,
Sophie

Indeed, doesn't show on my Android (not in Chrome, not in Dolphin browser)

Thanks for trying it.
We're not sure what we might have done wrong so if anyone has any experience of rectifying this problem, please let me know.

I've noticed the same problem with PDFs not displaying in Firefox. Might be a security thing?

Either way, as a workaround I just added a link above saying something like "Click the following link to view the workbook if it is not visible below"

For an example, see the Referencing page of this resource: xerte.cardiff.ac.uk/play_4087 (there are a couple of embedded PDFs at the bottom)

Hi

The same problem occurs in Edge on some 'normal pc's' (W10). I can see the pdf, but it is not possible to scroll down.

On some computers it works, others not...
Holy cow!

Thank you for sharing this tip and an example.

Also, I've just accessed your resource using Firefox and I can see and scroll the PDF at the bottom of the Referencing page. Not massively helpful but thought you might be interested to know this.
