PDFs are only displayed in a player object on the Mac!

No, they are treated like a video and you cannot control them properly if at all.

Nowhere, this is just some kind of "accident" that the Mac player can display PDFs :-)

To have a truly crossplatform solution you should use the Browser object and use that to display PDF files.
And even if you want this Mac only is the browser a better solution!

I have an example stack that I can send you if you like!
