On my machine (Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit, browser Chrome) then GOTD install failed (I renamed the UNCONFIRMED no-type file to ZIP, unpacked it, but repeatedly got error messages when I tried to install). I then downloaded directly from the publisher's site, unpacked to an MSI file, and installed and registered successfully, using the GOTD license code.

In standard HTML, a link can specify a new tab to be used to display the page for that URL. Also, a link to a URL can specify a name/id. If the same name/id is used for another link, the same tab will be used to display that URL again. Web developers commonly do this to prevent many tabs being opened for external pages (outside their own domain). If the user uses that new tab and then navigates back to the page that had the links to that tab, and when they click on the same URLs again, a new tab is not opened because they are already in the specified tab.

When a separate program opens a browser page, whether a new tab in a browser is opened or the currently displayed tab is used again is determined by the browser settings.

I was intrigued by TK's comment that the program's About button opens a web browser page AND used the current page rather than start a new tab/page, and I wanted to see how that was possible. If it is possible, I wanted to join in on echoing this bad behavior. No 3rd-party program should ever do that.

After installation of PDF Link Editor, I clicked on the About button, and instantly I was switched to my browser where the home page for this product was displayed. I looked at the back arrow, and it indicated there was no "previous" page to go back to. Also, the browser tab to the left was showing exactly what it had before. When the About button is clicked on, it does open a small "About" dialog. In that window is a link to the homepage for this product. I tried clicking on it, and it also opened up a new tab. In other words, I cannot duplicate what TK observed. Can anyone else?

Gary, it may be dependant upon your systems default browser in use. Some browsers have a default setting of always open a new link in a new TAB so will not be affected by this bug. (the likely configuration used by the developers which would likely be why they missed the bug) On windows Vista that is always kept patched to the latest server 2008 SP2 cumulative security patches) I keep IE 9 as default system browser and run various third party portable browsers that launch several prefered tabs on launch so have different firefox and chrome based portable instances for different key tasks.

TK,
>"it may be dependant upon your systems default browser in use"
I was trying to keep my comment as short as possible. In more depth, I have several browsers installed because I need to check web code in each, but first, it is not the prerogative of a separate program to decide which tab is used in any browser; that isn't the way browsers and "other programs" interact.

A program sends the URL to open to whatever is the default browser (a few programs have opened Internet Explorer regardless of the default, but not PDF Link Editor). The browser takes over and uses the current settings in effect to complete that task. It is as simple as that. It doesn't matter which browser is the default. Still, I went to the trouble of testing several browsers because it was an easy test, and I am constantly switching the default browser back and forth to test other things.

Currently, I have Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Avant, Opera, Brave, Maxthon, Slimjet, SR Iron, K-Meleon, Epic Privacy Browser, Vivaldi, and a few others as portable browsers. In turn, I set each browser to be the default browser, opened a few tabs, selected 1st, last, and in the middle for 3 tests, then for each, clicked on the About button in PDF Links Editor. Each time, it used the browser I had set as the default, and in each, opened a new tab. This was all on my testing PC. On a separate user PC, I have Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, and Vivaldi. I installed PDF Link Editor on that computer as the Trial downloaded directly from the developer website. For each browser, the results were the same, a new tab was opened each time I clicked on the About button. Both of those tests were made using IE11, not IE9. I was confident I had a computer in storage that had IE9 on it, so I looked it up in my database, and it also had Vista. Voila. Now, I could test in as close to your environment as possible. It booted up fine. I installed the Trial edition of PDF Link Editor. I got the same thing, a new tab was opened no matter which tab I have used last.

In the Internet Options Setting is where Microsoft has a setting dialog for Tabs in all browsers that have tabs:

Open links from other programs in:
A new window
A new tab in the current window
The current tab or window.

The default has always been "A new tab in the current window." The Reset defaults will ensure "A new tab in the current window" is selected. You can verify these settings on a web search (Brinkmann IE tabs).

The only way I can get PDF Link Editor to use the same IE9 tab is by changing the default setting to "The current tab or window."

If the issue were in the program, it should work the same for all of the users. That does not seem to be the case. Since the program should not be able to control which tab to use and testing multiple browsers confirm that is how PDF Link Editor works, it is unlikely the developer will invest any time with what you claim.

Gary, Thanks for clarifying and sharing information I did not have:-) Was not aware of the control of TABs in IE9... never searched for it that hard since some programs did open new links in new IE9 windows so figured that was something all developers should be able to do. Have now set mine to open new links from other programs in a new TAB in same window which *should* prevent draft comments being stepped on any more. Yay! Thanks again.

But the About window launch of the link in the form on form open rather than on link object left click is definetly a bug that should be fixed, should take 30 seconds to correct if the project is loaded in the IDE already.

Pity that some of these Giveaways are provided in the "wrapper" that makes them un-installable on my machine. Interested enough to visit the programme website directly which AVG claims has malicious software onboard . Think I might leave this one!

I can see no reason this will not install and function within Windows XP SP3 with .NET 4.0 client installed. It installs and runs under Vista. There is no built in help system. The Help menu How To entry just launches the URL https://pdflinkeditor.com/tutorial.html in the current default browsers current TAB context so will try to steal your currently viewed page and NOT open a new TAB for itself.

There is an annoying bug in the "About" method used... in addition to launching an About information window it launches a webpage to the default web browser in the current tab context, risking stealing the page you were currently looking at. This is undesirable behaviour and extreemly bad manners!

Do not keep a comment you are editing here in context when working on this program if you are doing a review... switch to a New Tab just in case... it can be very frustrating when the program you are reviewing trashes the draft comment from the browser due to an unexpected webpage launch!

Any PDF editor I have now and any PDF editor I had in the passed can do that. Even you can replace thousands of hyperlinks with a simple search and replace command that is in every PDF editor or document editor. Nothing special about such feature.
