Hi Laza, I am facing the same issue - PDF files do not open when I am using Projector skin

Not the same issue, not the same skin.

I've split this post off into a new thread, and moved it to where it belongs.

Confirmed. Clicking the prompt does not open the PDF.

There shouldn't be a need for an "associated viewer," since PDF's are supported in all browsers.

With 3D effects embedded documents don't work. Perhaps, the skin should enable them on 2D transitions.

Ah, yes. I don't tinker with Projector very often, so I forget that it's all about the varied transitions. Those don't lend themselves to things like PDF's.

Rather than try to tailor the solution, I think I'd just declare that this skin can't handle PDF's, and exclude them. Not every skin has to support every type of AO.

In fact, videos are kind of ugly in this skin, too (they go full viewport, and get blurry). It wouldn't be unreasonable to say that this is an "images only" skin. :)

Yes, I might remove "other" file types completely, or at least warn users about the limited use.
