NWE: Open links in preview in a new tab
Closed, ResolvedPublic1 Story Points


When you click a link in VE, it will open in a new tab. But in the preview in NWE links open in the same tab. While this is the same behavior as in OWE, in NWE you will loose your edit when you leave the tab (in OWE you can just go back, and most browsers will restore your edit), so this should be changed to automatically open all links in a new tab.
