Calibre's viewer is essentially a ePub viewer and all files that are not ePub will get a quick and dirty (read this as incomplete) conversion before being presented by the viewer. Since PDF files are known to often be bad sources for conversion to other formats it is best not to use calibre's viewer to view pdf books.
But PeterT I agree with you, for @Dullahir
there is no reason not to use calibre to open the pdf in the viewer app of his/her choice. Just go to Preferences - Behavior
and uncheck the box next to PDF
in the Use internal viewer for
Certainly using calibre to search and find the PDF book you wish to view is nicer than poking around the thumbnails in your folder.
