How do I compose a new jira ticket in a new tab?

Hi folks.

I've upgraded to the new look and feel and it's pretty nice.  


However right now when I hit "C" to compose a new ticket, it brings up an overlay on top of my existing tab.  Is there a way to open a new ticket in a different tab so that I can still reference information on the original tab?


Any help would be greatly appreciated!


Thank you!

Thanks Branden.  I used to be able to hold down "command" and click on the link and it would open in a new tab, but that no longer seems to be working.  Has this functionality been removed?


Thanks again!
