      SCRATCH THIS – SEE CODE AT BOTTOM TO RESOLVE

      When a users opens a child editform, from a parent form’s vlookup, and there are attachments in that form. The attachment opens in that pop up box and they lose where they are in the form.

      Is there a way to force the attachment field of a child form (well any form really) to open in a new tab?

      If not as a fall back I can get users to right click and open in a new tab manually.

      I added this code and it worked..

      
      
      $(document).ready(function(){
              $("table#idAttachmentsTable a").attr('onclick', '').click(function (event) {
                  event.preventDefault();
                  var url=$(this).attr('href');
                  window.open(url, '_blank');
              });
          });

      Paul, in case others are having a similar issue, in DFFS v 4.4.5.0, Alex made the following change:
      “Added a new setting in the Misc tab to force attachments to open in a new tab.”

      I love that you figured out the code to make this happen yourself, and shared it with the community. It will undoubtedly come in handy for those using an earlier version of DFFS than 4.4.5.0 and who wish to remain on their older version.
