Is there a way to include a separate pop-up reference window in MaxDiff surveys?

As a part of my MaxDiff survey, I am hoping to include an attachment that will display a table of definitions of different items. I am hoping that I can include this attachment as a separate pop-up window from the actual survey. In such a way, I am hoping the participants can keep this window open on their desktop while they complete the MaxDiff exercise so that they can refer back to it if needed.

Does anyone know if this is possible, and if so, how I can do this?

Thanks in advance for any thoughts you could provide.

This can be done using the Sawtooth Script function PopUp.  Start by creating a .htm file with the information you want displayed, then place that file into your study's graphics folder.  Then all you have to do is call the PopUp function in your MaxDiff like this:

[% PopUp("Click me!", "myfile.htm", 100, 100) %]

Of course, the file name in that snippet must be replaced with your own file name.
