When adding a prototype link of “On Click>Open Link” is there any way to control whether that link opens in a new tab or stays in the existing tab when viewing in a browser. I’ve seen it happen both ways but can’t figure out how to control it.
I’m linking between pages of the same project and would love to keep in all in one tab.
I’m having a similar problem, my embedded links (in decks im making) are opening the link in the same tab/closing the pdf and thus disrupting the flow… would like to be able to set the link to open in a new browser tab.
Really would love this as a checkbox feature to open link in a new tab or not. The current default behavior of always opening a new tab is confusing for our users, and memory intensive.
One workaround for TEXT LINKS ONLY is to link to the page – if you have only one prototype flow on that page. However, this doesn’t work for interaction links that are part of a prototype (say, over a graphic) ,
It’s bad enough that we have to use this workaround to do something as simple as link to another page in a prototype (when are you going to fix this!!) - but the workaround still sucks and breaks a golden rule in UX - never break the back button.
REALLY need the option to open links in the same tab.
Are you referring to viewing prototypes in a browser window? I was looking for a solution to open a second browser window from a prototype and added target=“_blank” to the link which works. I wonder if using target=“_self” or “_parent” would keep it in the same window.
+100 from me!
Having this would also mitigate the “why can’t I link to a frame on another page” issue as you could then use “open link” with a link to a flow start on another page and have it open in the same window instead of a new one.
