Text link target reverts to "_blank"

    When adding a link to Text, the link target defaults to "_blank" which makes it open in a new window. I can change the link target either through the Insert/edit link dialog or Edit HTML Source. After clicking Complete, the link target change works as expected in the Form Builder preview. But if I preview the live form or reload the Form Builder page, the link target always reverts to "_blank". This happens regardless of what I change the target value to (_self, _parent, etc or removing the target attribute completely) or the method I use to change the target (insert/edit link, edit html).

    Please fix.

    I could reproduce the same behaviour. I forwarded this to our developers' team so they can look better into this. 

    They will contact you via this thread once they have an update.

    Let us know if further support is needed.

    This problem has been fixed. Kindly edit the html links on your form to open in the same window, then re-save your form.

    Let us know if you run into any other problems.
