Link opens in new window

January 10, 2013

A new system-wide setting for WINDOW TARGET in LINKS BOXES has been changed.

Links will  open in the same window now, as opposed to opening in a new window; this was done so we follow accessibility guidelines.

You can check links in your guides by going into the edit menu of each link; check that the WINDOW TARGET is set to USE SYSTEM DEFAULT.

Did you know…there is a shortcut method for opening links in a new window?

Right-click the link to get a menu of choices on where to open a link.

Right-click menu is displayed
