One response to “How To Use Your Practice Journal

  1. Jason: In your video on practice journal, you said you couldn’t get the video link link in your entries to open in a new tab. The solution is to type the words “new window” (but without the quotations marks) into the field marked Target when you are creating the link. Then Submit.

    Usually the target field has a couple of drop down choices, which aren’t here, so just type it in.
