    How can I make a hypertext link open a new browser window when it redirects rather than coming up to replace the form?

    If I understood your question correctly, you would like to add a link to your form but would like that link open in a new tab. Normally, when you add a link to text field via insert link button, it opens the link in a new tab. However, it is seen not possible currently. I'm escalating this to our back end team. 

    On the other hand, you can achieve it by switching to version 3. Please follow below steps:

    1. Go to your "Setting" page and select "Version 3" on "Form builder" section.

    2. Open your form and add a "Text" field on it. Click "Insert/Edit Link" button inside the Text field.

    3. Write your link to the pop-up window.

    4. Click "Complete" button 

    After that, your link will be opened in a new tab in the same browser. Hope, this helps you.
