Cannot add .pdf files as attachments to transactions

Windows, just upgraded to R34.20. I am no longer able to add .pdf file attachments to register transactions. When I try, I get a message box saying "Quicken cannot attach the file because it is already in use. Please close the program running the file, and then try again."

The file is not in use in another program. I've restarted the machine, checked task manager for anything that might be using the file and it's not in use. I can attach .bmp, .jpg, and .png versions of the same document to transactions, just not .pdf.

Can't find anything online about it and I'm pretty frustrated, because .pdfs are part of my workflow. Any insights would be appreciated.

    If you haven't already, you may need to hide the File Explorer's preview pane (press Alt + P).

    Sherlock, thank you. That was it. I hadn't even noticed that the preview pane was on.
