PDF file error on load


My configuration: Mac SO Sierra 10.12.6 (16G2136)
Obsidian: Version 1.1.9 (Install 0.14.5)
Icloud for synchronization

I have in a new vault a note of which I added a pdf by the drag’n’drop, which gives as line in the note ![[lefichier.pdf]]. But, the pdf does not display and I have the following message:
PDF error, Failed to load PDF document.

On my iPhone IOS 15.7 and Obsidian 1.41 (83 API v.1.0.3) it works, I see my PDF.

I took the vault out of the iCloud folder, on the desktop of the Mac, and I have followed the procedure, disabled all community plug-in and tested in the sandbox vault
but the error persists, the same on restarting the computer.
