Embed PDF files with range options

I’ve been using Obsidian to embed PDF textbook files for referencing. Some sections range to many pages and embedding only the first page of the section is quite limiting. As the title suggests, a feature to have ranged embedded PDF file would be wonderful.

I’ve tried Obsidian Better PDF Plugin, it’s an amazing plugin but it embeds all the pages which clutters the note.


You can actually include only a range of pages using the Better PDF Plugin syntax. See:

{"url": "/PDF/1 - Kidney and CVD.pdf",
"scale": 2.0,
"range": [1, 4]}

This will include only pages 1 to 4 of the embedded file.

Better PDF Plugin is now deprecated, and can’t be used for the latest versions of Obsidian. Is there a simple CSS snippet for adding a page range to the standard #page= syntax?
