PDF link's break the window it's openend in


Bug report

PDF file links break the window of the application. Makes the main window go dark when using new windows they go white.


  • Platform: (Probably all)
  • App Version: (3.20.1)


Add a PDF file to your note using this (soon to be deprecated) path format:

Click on it. And it does ask if you want to save it. Which is something. I’d rather see it open the file in it’s default application. But it screws up the active window. What I do now is use 'Middle Mouse btn or CTRL + Mouse btn 1 to open it in a new window that gets screwed up but then the main window remains in tact.


Hi Sceptic,

Thank you for the report.
That’s because the URI is currently considered as invalid in the app.
I’ll work on supporting file:// protocol and the app will open a link with it in an external browser/app.
