    Can I insert a live link that would open another window or tab when clicked?

    Asked by mahindrausa on March 06, 2014 at 03:56 PM

    My form is:  http://form.jotformpro.com/form/40586021185956

    I have the link pasted in a text box, and it works when I copy/paste in a new window.  Is there a way to make this a live link? 

    I've tried searching in widgets and FAQs, and found nothing.

    Perfect! I knew it was an easy oversight by me….
    Thank you. I missed that icon in the HTML editor.
