Embed PDF viewer doesn't show file name

Steps to reproduce

  1. Embed a PDF into a note.
  2. In Preview mode, move the mouse over the top of the PDF embed window to bring up the PDF viewer toolbar.

Expected result

I expected to see the File name in the header, not a random string of characters.

Actual result

A random string of characters is displayed, and this random string of characters will change every time Obsidian is closed and opened.


  • Operating system: macOS 11.2.2
  • Obsidian version: v0.11.5 (also occurred in v0.11.4)

Additional information

This is a problem with electron.

Will be fixed in 0.14.15+, you will need to download and reinstall obsidian from the website when it’s released.

Any timetable for the 0.4.15 release? The current release is 0.14.6, so there have been 9
insider builds since the last public release. The next update is going to be major :slight_smile:
