I had the same problem and edited the file upload_file.html 
in ...lib/UI/pages/admin (or copy it in CATROOT/pages/admin):

find the line:
$regex = q{@_UI_CONST_IMAGE_REGEX_@} || '\.(?:gif|jpe?g|png)$';

and change it to:
$regex = q{@_UI_CONST_IMAGE_REGEX_@} || '\.(?:gif|jpe?g|png|pdf)$';

You also may set the UI_CONST_IMAGE_REGEX Variable without editing
this file....
