Access to file denied


While trying to open any PDF, I get an “Access to file denied.” error.
I think I’ve logged into my Google Drive, as I can see all the files. Perhaps there’s another way to check?
Anyone else seen this error?


Please contact us via the in-app chat or at so we can investigate further.


Yes - an also getting this. I cannot annotate with anything!


Try opening the file with our built-in viewer. To activate it, go to the Browser Integration tab of the settings menu (upper right) and set your PDF viewer to “Viewer with annotations (beta)”.
