Incorrect Links

For the last month or so, when I place multiple links near each other in my instructables, one tends to copy the other. So, while I copy and paste the proper url into each separate link, they end up being the same. It's happened multiple times with multiple instructables. I've been able to fix it, but it usually takes a couple tries for it to stick.

Link to website

Hello Instructables users! I need your help! I found a link maybe six months ago  that took me to a japanese students website.  On that website there is a video called hidden places or secret places. I would really like to find that link again, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Direct Links To Comments

.  When on https://www.instructables.com/you/subscriptions?type=comment , when I click on someone's comment synopsis it will take me to the appropriate page and "auto-scroll" the page to the comment (eg, / #xxxx). It would be nice if this happened everywhere. .  Along the same vein: It would be nice to have links on pages similar to https://www.instructables.com/community?categoryGroup=all&category;=all that go straight to the most recent comment.

Linking to Excel files

I've been a lurker for a while now and I am currently writing my first Instructable.  I'd like to be able to include an Excel spreadsheet which I developed to help design the item I am writing about.  I have uploaded the file but it seems that the site treats it like a picture.  Is there a way to include a link to a file you have uploaded so that the reader can download it and use it?  I could always upload it to a file sharing site or Google Docs and link to it there but I feel there must be a way to do it withing the Instructables site.  You'd have a similar need for things like CAD drawings or code files.

Problem with Links in Ible Editor

Hello fellow Makers! I've been following Instructables for few years but only started to become an active member in the last year and have been posting few ibles. So I'm a newbie in this stuff. A problem I had is that whenever I add a link in the editor, I cannot make it to open the link in new tab. What I normally do, I add the link, give a name to that link, and tick on the box at the bottom that says "open link in new tab" and press insert. However after saving the draft and publish it the link didn't open in new tab (I'm using Chrome). It open in the same tab instead.  Am I doing something wrong here? -clueless soul-
