Hello everyone.

We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.

The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.

The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.

On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.

So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.

Open PDF while running Unity application

Good evening,

Recently I was trying to create an app in Unity where with a button I could open an image or a pdf while the app remains open and running. I thought that maybe if I defined several 2D Empty Objects (as Images, Raw Images...) the app would still run while doing this.

I tried to open a pdf file with the Hololens emulator and, although it opened the pdf with the Microsoft Edge, the app stopped running. To open the pdf file I manage to used the WWW class.

I was wondering if there is a way that I could open the pdf file and it doesn't break the entire process of the app, something like a pop-up link. If there is no way to do this, how did you manage (how do you think is possible) to open a pdf while running an app?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Best Regards
