    I would like to open documents saved on my Samsung Note 3 by scanning a QR code. I created a QR code (file:///storage/extSdCard/work stuff/circuit.pdf), but when scan it will not open the document just shows address. Any ideas please

    Try it on an html file. If that works, it's that the QR code will only run the document in the default browser, which can't handle pdf files.

    (Just a thought off the top of my head. I adb'd the external card path and as far as Android is concerned, files there are actually there.)
