Page trigger to open PDF in new window

I'm trying to use the following sequence so that when PDF 'X' is opened it triggers PDF 'Y' to open in a new window. These documents are both stored on a server and accessed via weblinks.

Page Thumbnail > Page Properties > Action Menu > Page Open > Open a web link

Trouble is that when PDF 'X' is opened PDF 'Y' immediately opens in the same tab. Is there a way to get it to open in a new window??

Many thanks..

You might check your Preferences, in the General Tab, there is a setting "Open Cross Document links in same Window". Uncheck it, and try again.

Hope this can help.

Hi Max,

Thanks for your answer. Sadly it doesn't seem to be working. Also, when other users access this form I'll have no way to control the settings on their machine.

Is it looking like I'll have to use Javascript to open a new window when the PDF is first opened??
