We've changed the behaviour in the latest plugin version, see if that now does what you need.

Works fine. Thanks.

Sory David & Farzad, can you please share how to configure draw.io to have a button link into new tab ?

We could add an option for this, but I'm loathe to, tbh. Open in new tab within browsers is a standard paradigm and each additional UI option makes it more complex. Is there a specific use case that's causing a problem with this?

The use case is when your link is an external link. Imagine you have a diagram which has links to internal confluence pages and also links to public internet. Usually you want the links to confluence pages to open in the same page to keep the flow. But when it comes to links to external pages (internet) you usually want them to be opened in a new tab.

Hi everybody, is there any thing new on this topic ? I have the same problem / use case like Farzad.

Is this Cloud or Server? If Server, which draw.io version?

In the latest version, click "Edit Macro" and then Links.links.png
