Composite Opener - supported media types

Hello guys,

can anybody tell me what media-types are supported by composite opener? I'm using it together with DLP functionality in MWG 7.2 but in some media-types it doesn't work.

For example MS Office Documents works fine but there is a problem with PDF.

When I'm trying pdf files, MWG tell me:

MediaType.IsCompositeObject = true

Body.IsSupportedByOpener = false

MediaType.HasOpener = true

Thank you in advance
