Can you view PDFs inline?

I have a database which stores PDFs in a local container field. When I put the field on a layout, it just shows an icon for the PDF, along with the PDF's name. If I control-click and choose Export Field Contents, I can then view the PDF in a PDF viewer, so I know there's nothing wrong with the PDF itself. Why does it just show an icon in FileMaker? Is there some way I can make the actual PDF itself display on my layout, instead of just an icon for it?

 

I'm using version 14 on a Mac, in case that matters.
