I want to make PDF embeds downloadable!

I post study guides for my students with fill-in blanks.  I just learned to make them in PDF format because MS Word formatting issues were a nightmare for the students.  Now I find that when I embed a link to the file in a Canvas page I can't make it downloadable and all I can find in the discussions here is how to PREVENT students from downloading PDFs.

Can I make PDFs so that they ARE downloadable for students??

Hi! Any time a user clicks the "hyperlinked" title of the PDF, it should prompt an automatic download. There is a small document with a magnifying glass that someone could click to view it as an in-line preview. What happens when you try to click the link/source of the PDF after you complete your editing?
