How can I show a pdf in the latest version of the jce?

This is best done with the File Manager, which can either create a link to the pdf, or embed it in the article using an iframe.

To do this, click on the File Manager button (if the button is not in your editor toolbar, you can add it in Editor Profiles -> Features & Layout. Please see - https://www.joomlacontenteditor.net/support/faq/editor/pro-buttons-missing-after-upgrade)

Select your pdf file by clicking on it's name, then set the Format option to IFrame.

Set a width and a height for the iframe, and any other options you requires, and click the Insert button.

The screenshot you included in your email is of the default Tinymce editor.

Please see step 4 of the installation instructions - https://www.joomlacontenteditor.net/support/installation/editor

I'm trying to show an embedded pdf using JCE, however after embedding the pdf tries to loads in the browser. I get a dialogue box open up by firefox asking how I want to open the file. I want it to show in the actual article. How can I do this?

Thanks,

Actually, it turns out that it is a browser issue. It seems to work perfectly in Chrome, but firefox downloads the article. Any help would still be much appreciated, though.

This is because of Firefox Applications settings.

In Firefox Preferences, search for "pdf" then set the Portable Document Format Content Type to Open in Firefox.

Hi Ryan
Yes - i have this situation:
I have a folder. Here a user uploads a magazine as a PDF (approx. Every two months). The PDFs are saved on the server as follows:

2021_01_02_Pontonier.pdf
2021_03_Pontonier.pdf
2021_04_Pontonier.pdf
2021_05_06_Pontonier.pdf
and so on ...

Now my question is whether you could always automatically display the latest PDF in the iframe, so that the PDF cannot be manually uploaded to the module or module every time you upload it. needs to be adjusted in JCE.

No, JCE does not create or update dynamic content in this way. There may be an extension on the JED that process media folders for display - https://extensions.joomla.org/
