PDF screen - Document Location - Load from URL doesn't work

Hi all,

it's been a while, glad to be back !
I've tried on both Chrome and IE. In the menu "Document Location" in a PDF screen, when I click on "Select" to Load from URL, it doesn't open the pop-up menu with the file selection, it just goes to the top of the page.
It didn't use to do that before.

Anybody else has the same problem ?

Cheers
Nicolas

Hi I'm using BT 3 on self host and no pop-up opens when you click a location of either filename in project or url for the pdf doc plugin. In previous BT 2.1.9 it used to but not now so I usually just copy and paste the full url needed into the url field and find it works correctly when the app is tested. I'm not sure if its mandatory but I also include the http:// when I paste just in case.

I hope this helps. There is something else to take note of with pdf doc plugin when used with iOS I found opening a lot of pdf files one after the next it crashed the app because it wasnt releasing them from memory so I added an extra line of code to release them and now dont have that issue. i think the solution is in a previous forum post I made but if you want it I can give it to you.

Hi Sherry !

you're right, pasting the file URL should work. I'll knock at your door again if it doesn't. I work on Android for now, so I guess I don't need your IOS trick just yet.
Thank you for your help Sherry !
