Linked Maps New Browser Option

In Details, Documentation, then Insert Link I can insert a link and tell BW to open it in a new window. Can BW do the same for linked maps? I understand that there is a cookie crumb at top of the window that allows the viewer to go back where they started but when comparing map to map it would be better to open the 2nd map in a new window. The default can be to keep in same session but would be great to have a choice either during changing an activity box to a linked process or when the user selects the link to view the other map.

    Thanks for your request, Aaron! We intend to add the ability for the user to choose to open up a linked process in a new browser window. We don't have a timeframe identified yet, but will update this RFE when it gets closer to scheduling.
