Copying From PDF Viewer Fails in New Window

Attempting to copying text from a PDF in a new Obsidian window (separate from main window) does not work (nothing is copied). It still works if PDF Viewer is in main window.

This has been replicated in the Sandbox Vault too.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open a PDF In a new window
  2. Try to copy the text with either CTRL+C or the Right-Click → Copy button
  3. Notice that it fails to copy

Expected result

Text should be copied.

Actual result

Text is not copied.
