First select some random text in the issue description and then click on the attachment.

  • Thanks for the reply, but that didn't work for me. It just activated the editor, same as with a normal click. Jan 29, 2020 at 20:34
  • You have to first select some random text in your issue description and then shift-click on your attachment. I hope they will fix this soon. So far, I can't find any related issue on Atlassian Support..

  • Ok if I first select some text of the Description, then when I click on the PDF attachment it opens it in the same tab. I don't need to shift-click. If you update your answer, I'll accept/upvote it. Thank you for your help! Jan 31, 2020 at 8:44
  • Nevermind I just rewrote it myself. Jan 31, 2020 at 8:49
