Shape Hyperlink to open into a new tab RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am using a Microsoft Visio version 2010 and tried creating a flowchart. In some of my shapes, I put hyperlinks which redirect to a file saved in SharePoint. I uploaded this visio file I created, and upon clicking links, some would open into new tabs and some won't. I don't see any difference on how I created the hyperlink but one thing I saw in the link is this:

    links that won't open in a new tab looks like this:

    viewer.aspx?vdxfile=Complete Tiering Matrix.vdx

    links that would open in a new tab:

    viewer.aspx?vdxfile=Early%20Project%20Awareness.vdx

    I noticed that the difference is the "%20" between the spaces. the first link doesn't have "%20" and I don't know why.

    I hope you could help me solve this.

    Thanks in advance.

  • %20 has nothing to do with opening into new tab, it is URL encosing done by SharePoint. while setting hyperlink shape in visio you must check if any option is there to open in new window.

    Just click on hyperlink shape in Visio and do ctrl+k, see if some option is there.
