I have a file that I want to share that will be opened using a pdf viewer therefore I need to access to its raw file. I have other files that work but not too sure what I am doing wrong with this one that causes it to not work. Please advice.

 

Original shared link: (works)

[dl=0 link removed]

 

Raw shared link edited with raw=1: (doesnt work)

[raw=1 link removed]

 

Thanks!

Hey @nauxoahs, thanks for joining our Community and happy Friday!

Can you please clarify if you're actually trying to force download the file when opening the link, so that it can be opened with a PDF viewer?

If so, you'll need to add 'dl=1' at the end of the link, instead of 'raw=1'. Can you try that and let me know how it goes?

Thanks!
