The link in new tab macro does not work


I'm trying to use the "Link in new tab" macro, so that my link will open in a new tab :) However, even though I am using this macro, the link still opens in the same tab.

Any ideas what I'm doing wrong?


Thanks in advance!

From what I know this is not possible to open a link in a new tab without using an addon. See

There is a workaround for it also

Not sure what addon you use (if any). Do you know maybe? Or you can share a screenshot to see how this macro looks like?

If it should work maybe your browser settings are different? Did you tried on a different browser also?
