Hello there!

Currently, this is listed as a Feature Suggestion in our reports. You can take a look at it here:

Users can use the following to open links in a new tab:

  • CTRL+Left Click (Windows) or CMD+Left Click (macOS)
  • Right click > Open in a new tab

This need has been shared in our Community a few years back, you can check it here:

Let us hear from you!

This would be a great enhancement!

I agree with the suggestion. It's a fundamental User Experience principle to keep the user "knowing" where they are. Using the back button on the browser isn't that great. It's also awkward to tell our users to use CTRL+Left Click, etc.  This would be a much needed enhancement.

I changed the anchor tag, in the "edit HTML" to include the target="_blank" attribute inside the anchor tag.  I saved the changes and it TOOK MY EDITS OUT!

That's frustrating.

same here, that is actually nuts.. Would love to hear their logic for this.
