Attachment inconsistency between Mac and iPhone for PDF thumbnails

Love the new images feature.

Just one thing that’s a little odd:

I’ve added a jpg, a pdf and docx. When I set all of them to thumbnail and title, the pdf is inconsistent:

  • on the Mac, the thumbnail is an image
  • on iPhone it is three lines, just like the docx.

This has to do with what the system provides. On macOS a PDF is treated as an image by the system and we can easily get a thumbnail, on iOS the system doesn’t treat PDFs as images and hence we’ll need to write our own preview generator, which plan to do but didn’t make the cut for this round.

Thanks for explanation! Not a biggie, just seemed a bit odd.
