PDFs not opening from a file manager/explorer


I just installed Crossover for mac.
I am using it for Total Commander (a file manager).
Usually when I double click a PDF file, it would open in macOS Preview, as desired.
However, for many files just nothing happens.

This seems to be related to the directory where the file is stored and/or the file name.
For example, it seems that it does not open if the file name contains spaces.

Note that this is not a problem of Total Commander: The same issue appears with the builtin "Explorer".
