open link in a new tab

Hello everyone,
I have the following problem:
I would like to include a link in my survey where the participants are redirected to another web page. Unfortunately, the web page only opens in the same window where the survey is already open and participants would have to click the back arrow a lot if they want to get back to the survey. However, I would very much like the web page to open in a new window. Is this possible, and if so: how?

Kind regards and many thanks in advance.

Try using the SSI Script function as follows ...

PopUp("Link Text", "File.htm", Width, Height)

Example: [%PopUp("Click here", "https://www.google.com.au/", 850,650)%]

Aaahh yes Justin, I recall opening up the same window using "_self" (I believe this is default anyway), as opposed to the new window using "_blank".

Appreciate the reminder.
