How do I prevent documents opening in the same window when the users attempts to download them?


You may notice that PDF documents will open in the same window in the download area when the file is clicked on to download it.

This is browser dependent and not configurable beyond that, for example in Firefox, click on the download and a separate browser window will open up with the PDF inside. Other browsers behave differently

To avoid this with any type of document we recommend you zip the file first then upload it to your site.
