View (or see that there are) attachments in pdf file

New member | Level 2

I have many pdf files in my Dropbox that have attachments (of other pdf files) inside them.  Is it possible to access these with the online preview (on the website)?  The "show sidebar" button seems to only show the page thumbnails.  (In Adobe Reader, one of the sidebar icons opens the list of attachments.)  I'm disappointed that there is not even an indication that there *are* attachments within the pdf, as I have this folder shared with others and I've just realized that they may not even be aware the attachments are there.  (The attachments are still accessible if the file is downloaded - but from the preview there is no indication that you're missing anything!)

Hi there @Greg_S, I hope you're well today!

When previewing your PDFs through Dropbox online, I'm afraid you wouldn't see the attachments without downloading the file and opening it with Adobe Reader as this is a feature of the app you're using to open the files.

As this isn't currently something that can be seen from the Dropbox preview, if you'd like to request this as a feature, then I'd suggest sharing this in our dedicated area of the Community here.

Sorry that I couldn't be of much more help with this, but please do get back to me here if you have any questions.

Thank you!
