I Hate The New Linking Feature In the Editor

Recommended Posts

Today I noticed Squarespace has changed the method of inserting a URL link into text. Instead of a mini-box with all the usual controls easily accessible, it has changed to a massive box with all kinds of stuff I don't use. This results in more work for me because if I want to set to "open in new window", I must click through, adding extra clicks. This is problematic for any posts we do that have a large number of links.

Even worse, the "Open in new window" toggle is sometimes invisible as it's blocked out by an overlaying tool ribbon from the editor, and you can't scroll out of it. This is a user interface disaster.

Squarespace, you are making my job harder, not easier. Please simplify linking.

Yep, second this 100%! It's truly horrible.

Can you explain how to add file links that open in a new window with this new Link Editor? I know there's a toggle button to do this in the Web Address section, but I'm not seeing an option in Files, which is a major issue for me.
