How to get Downloads to open in a new tab [OptimizeMember]

Q: I'm using the download element in order to get people to download a PDF that I have. I'd like for my PDF to open up in a new tab instead of having it open in the same tab so that the viewers don't navigate away from my landing page.

A: At the moment we don't have a feature to open downloads in a new tab.  What we would advise is that you tell your members to right click and select save as to save your downloadable content.  We would normally place this information in the download link text or download description.
We are investigating the potential of adding an option to allow open of downloads in a new window but we usually advise asking your members to download content to their computer properly anyway.
