Firstly in the PDF Viewer section, you will be able to select the Source File. You may select Hosted File/Remote URL or you can Add Local File from your computer.
In case you don’t know what is Hosted File and Remote URL then read the texts below.
A Hosted File refers to a file that is stored on a remote server and can be accessed through the internet. This means that the file can be accessed from anywhere with an internet connection and is managed by the hosting provider. Examples of hosted file services include cloud storage platforms like Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive.
A Remote URL is a Uniform Resource Locator (URL) that points to a web resource that is hosted on a remote server. This means that the resource is located on a server that is separate from the client accessing it and can be accessed over the internet.

When you will enable the Show Download Button then as we told you before a New Button section will appear on the Content tab. So that you can Customize the Button according to your choice.
