Configure All Links In Document To Open In The Same Browser Window/Tab

I want to setup links in my document to always open in the same browser tab or window. Currently, every time a link is clicked, a new browser tab is created. I want to prevent these addtional tabs from being opened and just limit it to one. I know this can be done on the web with Javascript using Window.Open(). I'm wondering if and how this can be implemented in a PDF document.

 

Thanks

The only way to tell the browser whether or not to use a new tab is with a script, so you will have to convert all of your links to execute a script with the right parameters, but even then it's not likely to work.

However, I'm surprised to hear it's working that, as usually it's the other way around. I would look for a solution in the settings of the PDF viewer of your browser, instead of trying to edit the PDF.
