    I need to set the 'target' attribute in the link manager to open in a new window. Is there any way to set a default value?

    I have looked through the documentation and searched the forums but came up with nothing. 

    Thanks

    Hi Bruce,

    You can easily modify the functionality of the Link manager by registering the external RadEditor dialog files and opening the /EditorDialogs/LinkManager.ascx file. You can see how to do that in the following live example: Customize Built-in Dialogs.

    After that set the third option of the linkTargetCombo dropdown to be selected by modifying the following line
    this._linkTargetCombo.options[0].selected = true;
    to
    this._linkTargetCombo.options[2].selected = true;
    , e.g.

        _cleanInputBoxes : function() 
        { 
            this._linkUrl.value = ""
            this._linkText.value = ""
            if (this._linkTargetCombo.options && this._linkTargetCombo.options.length>0) 
            { 
                this._linkTargetCombo.options[2].selected = true
            } 
            ... 

    Save the file.
