Text(html) Field: how to force opening links in new windows/tab

    I have one Jotform that acts as my master instructions document with 20 links to 20 other jotforms that need to be completed. 

    Some of the links open in a new tab (which is what I want) and other links open in the same tab so the user cannot flip back to the instruction form.

    Can't see any difference in the links, can't find any check box to tell the link to open in new window or tab when creating or editing the link.

    What's causing the difference and how can I set links to other jot forms to open in new tab or window?

    If I am correct, this is your main form, isn't it? http://www.jotform.us/form/70633610333143 

    In order to fix this, you need to go into the source code of your Text field, then simply add  before the closing angle bracket(>) of your a tag:


    That will make the links to open in a new tab. Let us know if you have more questions.
