We have an approval workflows that require users to open PDF files stored on SharePoint, add annotations, save to SharePoint and approve the approval task. The problem we are having is that PDF files are not opened in edit mode when a link to a PDF file is clicked from the task email received from SharePoint. Users have to make additional steps to go to the library and open it there in edit mode.

Is there any fix/workaround so PDF files can be opened in edit mode directly from a SharePoint task email?
