    I have created a number of forms and when i look at the submissions aND get pdf VERSIONS OF THEM, THEY CONTAIN LINKS TO ADDITIONAL PDF'S.

    My issue is that i want these links to open up a new PDF window seperate from the parent window.

    Can I do this?

    The PDF file links in the submission was a result of the uploaded files in your form.

    The other PDF links to open on a new Window will depend on the PDF reader/viewer you are using. 

    I used mozilla Firefox browser to view a PDF, and there is a Right-Click context menu that allows viewing of PDF links on a different tab

    Unfortunatelly, there is no direct or automated method to allow the links to open on a new separate window/view. You will need to rely on the capabilit of the PDF viewer currently used.

    Hope this help in any way. Please inform us if you need further assistance.
