Which pdf reader do you use? With Adobe no problem - whether as link or as attachment it works.
I assume it is your local PDF Reader.

Linked files will be opened with the connected software. If a pdf doesn't open, it depends on your installed pdf reader.
Maybe no permission.

Can you open it externally?

I use as standard for *.pdf files the pdf-xchange reader.

The attached *.pdf in MM I can open over extern option with this programm. So its not a problem of the programm or by the *.pdf.

Only if I want to open this *.pdf in MM directly the *.pdf, it is be shown for a little moment and then its gray.

The internal browser users the MS IE to view documents and web pages. Maybe your xchange pdf reader is not supported by this old IE browser

Adobe Acrobat Reader is for free. Or you check your settings in pdf-x-change.

thanks for the hints, in the moment after reinstall from pdf-xchange by the option "intern view" nothing happend (before gray)

If I understand right, MM take the MS IE if I take the option "pdf intern open"  ?
Or go MM through the standard browser of the user (for me chrome)?

now it runs :-)
if I take a *.pdf with explorer and take the option "open with" the IE with pdf wasn't  possible
I add the "IE with pdf" and after that in MM the option open inside runs.

Is there no option in MM to change through another browser for inside showing of pdff, links,... ?

Adjust in your computer where to go with the extension .pdf and where to geo with .html. This should fix it. MM uses standard settings of your computer.
