Summary 📄

Currently, links are not able to be opened in a secondary draggable Shift window (i.e. if you want to display an opened link in a new window on a secondary monitor). Subsequently, there are some scenarios where links will not open in a secondary window:


1. Gmail - Compose in a new window


Unlike in the old version of Shift, v7, clicking the "compose in new window" button will open a new tab rather than a secondary window.




Our Product and Development teams are currently building out the infrastructure that will allow links to be opened in secondary draggable Shift windows.


Check back here for the latest updates. If you've submitted a support ticket for this feature request, we'll send you a note as soon as the feature is available for download.
