Embed pdf in canvas :: error "This link can't be embedded"


I try to embed some pdf into a canva… For the some of them, it works, for the others, it fails :

I notice the same issue when i try to embed some websites.

Is it a bug or does someone get the logic?

Thank you in advance for the help.


There are various causes for this message, most often it is because you/the doc does not have sufficient rights to the link.

E.g. If it is a link from your Google drive, ensure that “anyone with the link” can access the doc.


Thank you Piet for your answer.
These PDF are uploaded directly into Coda… :face_in_clouds:

Can you share an example?

The size of the doc seems to be a good reason… :face_with_monocle:
