I'm creating a course with CP 2019 that will have 4 modules, each a separate CP file. The published output will be HTML5, non-responsive, and will be accessed from a Chrome web page (rather than an LMS). Is there a setting that will force a module to open in a new browser window, as opposed to opening in a tab in an existing window?

You can configure the link that calls the HTML page of the Captivate content so that it will try to open a new window (https://www.w3schools.com/jsref/met_win_open.asp) but whether or not it opens an entirely new browser window or just another tab in their existing browser window is controlled by the end user's browser settings, not by the Captivate content. And on mobiles you don't really have any control at all over this because the browser usually occupies the entire viewport anyway.
Thanks for the information. Here's a somewhat related question, which I'll ask you before I post it to the Captivate community: I'm going to put links in the modules that open other modules in the course. Is there a way to create a link that can open a module and jump to a particular slide or section in that module? If not, I'll just include instructions with the link telling the learner to use the TOC in the other module to find the referenced section.
I would suggest you create another thread with this question and wait for someone to reply and give you their code.
Thanks! I will.
