PDF Embed - Content Plugin v2.1.5 Released with New Options

PDF Embed - Content Plugin v2.1.5 Released with New Options

We have released new version 2.1.5 for our most popular extension PDF Embed.

This version adds an option for admins to set the default PDF viewer if no viewer is specified in the syntax. This was needed for site admins who were using PDF embed for more than hundreds of  content articles. If you are updating from older version of plugin, this option will come handy, as you won’t need to edit all the content articles to specify the google or pdfjs viewer.

Also, with this version you can now specify both the height and width in percent for the PDF being embedded to avoid pixelwise width adjustments. ;)
