Sometimes the browser or local default PDF viewer app could cause such a problem, it think. After reinstalling Obsidian like rigmarole told you, with new installer, try to open the same PDF in you fav browser - is it opening good? If not - try to update PDF viewer.
I’ve seen such kind of error once in a while when the file was protected, btw.
Thank you both for sticking with me on this.
The reinstall has the pdfs rendering beautifully. This was an area of Obsidian that I could never nut out and now it works so smoothly.
I appreciate your help and I am further enamoured with the Obsidian project.
