Many moons ago (Fm 11 or earlier?) we were able to open a weblink in a new window/tab by creating a hypertext marker with the following syntax:
message URL https://www.adobe.com" target="_blank
This worked because the "URL" (https://www.adobe.com" target="_blank) got wrapped with quotes when publishing, resulting in the correct syntax.
Now, however, the quotes and space are parsed as %22 and %20 entities.
I've tried using the hex code for the characters (\x20 for the space) but that just gives me a %5 for the backslash in addition to the other entities.
Has anyone successfully unraveled the marker text syntax required for a new window/tab in a hypertext marker in Fm 2020?
Oh oh, that's worrying - I use that all the time in my FM12 content to launch YouTube video links.
I haven't tried that yet, but in 2020 they gave us the ability to insert direct links to YouTube videos.
I just checked, and it seems to work for me. FrameMaker 2020.
Got to be some difference in versions - what point versions are you both running?
