Opening PDF attachments

Recommended Posts

I use Evernote on my Android mobile (Samsung Galaxy S8+) and noted that if I want to open a note with a PDF attachment there is no possibility to choose Acrobat Reader despite it is installed on my smartphone. I can only choose either PDF OneDrive Viewer or Word just to modify the attachment, as shown on the screenshot attached.

I've also cleared the default applications on my mobile and then reinstalled both Evernote and Adobe Acrobat but it was unsuccessful.

If I try to open a PDF file saved into a folder, I have the possibility to choose Adobe Acrobat.

Thanks in advance for your help and kind regards.

Hi there,

I am also looking for it to be default.

In addition, when I select Edit instead of View, the screen "grey" off.
