About the Native PDF Viewer

The Native PDF Viewer allows you to display PDF files in your Hub in their native format within a web-based PDF viewer, instead of displaying them as Flipbooks. As with other Flipbooks display options, the Native PDF Viewer option is set at the Folder level, so selecting it will affect all PDF files within that Folder (i.e. you can't have both Flipbooks and native PDF content in the same Folder).

To learn more about the Native PDF Viewer and how it differs from the Flipbooks, see this article:
