Hi,

We are planning on using PDF Embed API to render the PDF in our application. While navigating through the document rendered, we noticed that blobs are getting downloaded from document cloud. On further inspecting, it looks like a preview of the document is returned from Adobe Document Cloud.

Details:

blob:https://documentcloud.adobe.com/c02ae5ee-0768-4d6f-9906-6f3875099df8

Downloaded Blob:

Netwok Stats:

Can you please help us clarify this behaviour?
