Opening PDF Files in Project Manager

We had a small TDP training session yesterday and the idea was brought up on how you can save a bunch of queries into a single project, as well as opening a .pdf documentation file if needed that might provide instructions or whatever for the queries in the project. I tried this on TDP 3.4 and 3.5 and it doesn’t show supported to open that type of file. When I still had it point to a .pdf file (by selecting All file types, it gives the error below when trying to open. Maybe we were given the wrong information, but is this truly not a supported file type to open in toad? If not, is there any other way to utilize a “documentation or instruction” type of file in the project?

Do you mean if we open a PDF file in the Project Manager, then it would open outside of TDP?


I’d like it to open inside of toad data point, but if it can’t outside is fine. At this point. We can’t open a .pdf file from the project manager at all.


I entered QAT-3032 for this. You can use a Word doc for now. That opens from project manger.
