Hi Yves,

Right now the current behavior (inserting links to PDFs) is probably 
better for most users. Unfortunately we do not have a setting for 
controlling this.
I'll add an internal issue on our side and consider adding some kind of 
setting to control how dropping PDFs in DITA topics is handled.
