Link to external PDF working in edit but not in preview mode

I am trying to link to a PDF outside of my vault using the following command:

[link](file:/Users/pathtopdflocation/somefile.pdf)

When I am in edit mode, using cmd + click opens this PDF in my default PDF viewer, as expected. However, when I am in preview mode, clicking the link does not do anything. I am working on Mac (Big Sur).

What should I do differently to get the link to open up the PDF when I am in preview mode as well?

Thanks in advance for any tips!

it’s [](file:///path/to file)

You can use drag-ctrl-drop to get the link.

Thank you, that works!
