Status: Closed (View Workflow)
Resolution: Tracked Elsewhere
Currently in Confluence there's no way to force a link to open in a new window, besides the workaround.
Cloud users are unable to apply this due to the Restricted Functions in Cloud, preventing added code.
Provide an option when creating a new link to choose whether a link opens in a new window.
- Confluence Server users can follow the workaround at How to force links to open in a new window
- Confluence Cloud users will not be able to apply this workaround.
- An option without modifying code would be to use the middle-click on your mouse if you have a three-button mouse, ctrl-click on Windows/Unix, or cmd-click on Mac. This option will also work for Cloud users.
