Easier way to find your attached pdf in file browser

I was sure this was an option already and it's baffling that it isn't. This needs to be added. Simply the option on right-click or wherever to view the pdf file in your file browser e.g. windows explorer.

Re: Easier way to find your attached pdf in file browser

if you right click on the pdf in the preview window of library or record, it gives me the option to open it in Acrobate Pro?  double clicking in the PDF in the record view does the same.

Re: Easier way to find your attached pdf in file browser

No, there is no option to right click and open the file location. I have been asking for this for years. The best I can offer at the moment is to open the PDF in acrobat (or your PDF viewer of choice) as Leanne suggests, then choose save as from within acrobat. Then you can copy the folder path in the save dialog box and paste it into a file explorer window to get to where the PDF is saved.

Also note, another way to open the PDF is to choose the reference in the library window and click on the icon that looks like a folder in the main toolbar.
