Hello -

 

I have encountered the following issue in SharePoint Online: when connecting a File Viewer web part to a Document Library web part, the File Viewer web part will not display the associated documents if a custom view - other than All Documents - has been selected in the Document Library web part settings. The only workaround I've come up with so far is to manually change the view from All Documents to a custom view within the Document Library web part command bar each time the page is loaded (thus tricking the connected File Viewer web part into opening the selected documents).

 

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
