showing preview of a PDF before user downloads it

Hi,
Is there a plugin/method to show a preview of a PDF file before a user downloads it?

    Hello cornelius_butler

    I hope you're well today!

    Here is a nice list and review of some popular PDF viewer plugins for WordPress:

    I believe one of the should work fine for you. However, please note that in case you want to show only preview you, as in "show only part of PDF" while full file can only be downloaded, you might actually need to create such "preview PDFs" first. What I mean is: have two PDFs instead of one for each document - one containing full content and one containing just some part of it for preview. Link the first one just like you do for download and embed the second one with one of those plugins to give users a preview directly on site.

    Kind regards,
    Adam
