Waypoint and pdf file

Problem:
I assign a file to a waypoint. (I have tried it on different folders with different Android versions <11).
If it is a .jpg file or a .txt file I have no problems, but as soon as I assign a pdf file it is saved in the waypoint, but when I call it up for display the message "File not found" appears. I have tried different PDF readers for the display.
If I open the same file from the file explorer, there is no problem.
Any ideas?
Thank you

I think it's an access problem.

I tried with 4 different attachments: pdf, jpg, txt and docx.

If files come from different folders, I can open only jpg.

If files are in the same folder, I can open jpg, txt and pdf. But not the docx.

Internal or external storage makes no difference.

Permissions for all files is granted (Verwaltung aller Dateien zugelassen).

Have you installed a docx viewer on your device? like "Google Docs"

I have different apps that can open and edit docx files. Problem only occurs when a docx file is saved as an attachment to an point/waypoint in Locus.

I am offered two identical icons of the docx viewer, but only one of them displays the file, see screencast

Hi guys,
interesting. I have a guy on help desk with same issue (PDF file) and I'm still unable to solve it.

@Graf Geo
What PDF reader are you using? Is there problem with all of them? I need to simulate the issue on own device, it is the key to solve it...

@balloni55
eh, two identical icons, weird. I see a single  ???

@Menion: I have different apps to open / read PDF files, none of them can open PDF files as attachment to points from different folders:

Adobe Acrobat
Office document viewer
Office Suite pro
Xodo
One read
Google Drive PDF Viewer

I repeat, if PDF file is located in the same folder like an attached image files (JPG etc.) PDF can be shown.

I tried following folders:

on Android devices with SD Card
SDcard/Android/date/menion.android.locus/files/date/import
SDcard/Android/date/menion.android.locus/files/date/export
SDcard/Download
.jpg in this folders worked.docs , .txt and i have not yet tested.

Under MEMU
storage/emulated/0/Locus/export
storage/emulated/0/Locus/data/import
storage/emulated/0/Locus/Test

As I did not update Android on my main device there is still running Android 10, on the tablet it is android 6 and MEMU shows 7.1.

I installed the actual AFA with MEMU, but it is not working.
Any pdf Reader shows only "file not found". PDF Viewer lite creates a log file which is enclosed.
