Drupal 8.4.2

I added PDF as a new field under BODY. I can now use PDF files when I add new content. However, the file does not display unless it is clicked on. I want the file to display the same way regular text would.

What do I have to do to accomplish that?

edit the display for the field in the manage display tab and check its settings.

Change settings to what? I have tried everything that I know. I assume that this is possible, I just cannot figure out how.
