Why don't I get a view or open option when clicking on a PDF?


AC Question

Why don't I get a "view" or "open" option when clicking on a PDF

During some Android update (thanks Verizon), my GS5 has lost the ability to open a PDF attachment. When I click on an attachment icon in an email, a window opens that says "Select Action What would you like to do with <the attachment name>?", and the only option I get is "SHARE". I used to also have "VIEW" or "OPEN". I have Adobe Reader installed on my phone and can open PDFs with it, just not via links in email.

How can I get the OPEN or VIEW action back?
