Download file setup

Download file setup

I have a 'Download file' behaviour applied to a form action page with a trigger of "before page load" so when the form is submitted it re-directs to the action page and downloads the PDF file. This works fine on desktop but on mobile devices it displays the download as the web page.

Is there a workaround for this?

I case there isn't I have tried to add a Submit button on its own on the page with the download behaviour applied to it but as explained in the Tutorial, you don't get an ID field to enter 'download' in it and there is no Submit/Button Download Pressed trigger option.

Does the button need to be in a form? All I want is a button the user clicks to download a PDF?
