Allow inserted links to open in new window

It is a best practice when linking to any site other than your own, to make it open in  a new window so as not to lose the reader. Since this is an email cms, that seems like it would have automatically have been the design.


I avoid inserting any links that aren't absolutely necessary because I don't want to lose email readers.

I agree this is a definite issue. Even this editor has that capability when inserting links.


I strongly agree, it is very important to have a separate window open when a link is clicked on, so the reader is able to get back to the newsletter to complete reading it. Even I accidently close out the document when reviewing the test email. Thank you for considering it.
