Failed to load PDF file

Describe the bug
I had inserted a PDF file into a Document with Anytype 0.22.3. After updating to 0.23.0 this PDF can’t be opened or downloaded anymore. I also tried to change the appearance, but the PDF file can’t still be opened or downloaded. Right click on the filename shows a little modal on the top left (Download in progress). But this modal is visible for just half a second. The PDF file isn’t downloaded.

A new PDF file can be uploaded and is working as expected.

To Reproduce
Steps to reproduce the behavior:

  1. Upload a PDF file with Anytype 0.22.3
  2. Update to Anytype 0.23.0
  3. The PDF file can’t be opened or downloaded.

Expected behavior
The PDF should be visible and downloadable.

System Information:

  • OS: Windows 10 (21H2)
  • Device Manufacturer/Model: Toshiba Laptop
  • Anytype Version: 0.23.0

Additional context


It happens also with images. (Several problems after update to version 0.22.0 - #10 by edwards)

What I understand from this bug is that when you (re)download the files from the backup server, the bug can happen (on Mac, Windows and iOS (for images)).
