i discovered an issue about the pdf-preview within obsidian.
After some research i only found a few posts on reddit and obsidian about this problem but no solution.
When loading an .pdf attachment into obsidian it does not show the files content.
This happens when the vaults data is beeing accessed via smb share i.e. (\192.168.1.X\foldername) or (\DNSName\foldername).
I was able to work around by mapping a network drive i.e. (Z:\smbfoldername).
What i tried before
- Deleted App Data
- Reinstalled Obsidian
- Installed Adobe PDF Reader for Plugin
- Created a new vault
Coincidentally it worked in the sandbox which made me check the filepath as mentioned above.
I hope to help those few people having the same issue when using shared folders and make obsidian better.
