    I need the {edit link} on my thank-you page to open up on it's own tab, but the code I get by clicking on the <> icon does not show the edit link as a hyperlink as usual.  How can I fix that?

    Hello - By default, the {edit_link} indeed opens a new tab. To get it to open on the same tab, try appending the Submission ID field {id} to your actual <a> tag, here's how it should look like:

    <a target="_blank" href="{id}">This EDIT LINK will open on its own page/tab</a>

    (you won't need to set the target attribute)

    Just copy the codes above and place it on your Thank You page via the Source Code <> icon that you mentioned. And change the URL's text as needed.

    Here's a quick form showing that same behavior

    Feel free to clone it (here's how) if you wanted to see how the Thank Page was setup.

    Let us know if that worked for you.
