    When the process of editing content is performed in a separate program from where files are stored, such as Microsoft SharePoint or OneDrive, it creates one more time-consuming step for employees. Adobe is eliminating that extra step.

    Expanded Adobe Acrobat for SharePoint and OneDrive. Open, comment, annotate, and edit PDFs in the browser – directly from SharePoint or OneDrive.

    Could it be true? I hope I'm reading this right.

    Brad, unfortunately no Boom here. Using new Edge browser.

    From https://helpx.adobe.com/acrobat/using/display-pdf-in-browser.html

    Microsoft Windows 10 will ship with two browsers: Internet Explorer 11 and the new Edge browser.

    The Edge browser will be the default browser, and Internet Explorer 11 will be available to support legacy workflows. The new Edge browser will not have any support for ActiveX plug-ins. Therefore, the Acrobat/Reader plug-in won't work with Edge. For more information, see Change in support for Acrobat and Reader plug-ins in modern web browsers.

    Use Internet Explorer 11 to open PDFs.

    @Anonymous The SharePoint Starter Kit (Github) has a "My Followed Sites" web part that may give you what you are looking for.

    Thank you for submitting this suggestion and voting on it. We have two events/calendar solutions in modern pages today. The events web part has card based event tiles, powered by events lists. You can roll-up events from multiple sites into one page, but there isn’t currently a wall calendar view.

    Alternatively you can select to leverage a group calendar, and pull all of your events (including recurring events) from Exchange. This too is a compact card based view.

    While we understand a wall calendar view is desirable, we’re not working on it at this time.

    MS: "While we understand a wall calendar view is desirable, we’re not working on it at this time."

    How about an explanation as to why it's "not in your plans right now"?

    You have decided what's best for our needs?

    In modern pages, we open links within SharePoint in the same tab by default, and external links in a new tab. In the text web part, users can specify to open links in a new tab, but that isn’t the default behavior. Similarly, for navigation links, they follow the same rule (within SharePoint, same tab, external to SharePoint in a new tab). This is true of the modern web parts that support linking as well (hero, quick links, images, etc.) This is the pattern we’ve adopted for consistency.

    After reviewing other areas of modern sites, like the site pages library, document libraries, lists, site contents, etc. we did find some different opening behaviors which we’ll review and resolve.

    Can you help us understand if this pattern isn’t meeting your expectation, if we have some inconsistencies within modern pages we’ve missed, or if it’s the other areas of modern sites where…

    Ok we have been "telling you more" for almost 2 months... how about a reply MS?

    I inserted an external link into a news item:

    https://www.businesswire.com/

    According to what you said on 5/15/2019:

    "In modern pages, we open links within SharePoint in the same tab by default, and external links in a new tab"... it opened in the same tab.

    MS, why are you making this difficult?

    Do you not believe us?

    Is this an "it works on my pc" situation?

    Or are you purposely trying to deceive us?

    FWIW I found this on GitHub

    https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/OfficeDocs-SharePoint/blob/live/SharePoint/SharePointOnline/plan-navigation-modern-experience.md

    Many usability guidelines recommend limiting the number of new windows that are automatically opened for site visitors. Most of the time, opening a link in the same window allows site visitors to use the back button when they want to return to your site. When a visitor wants to open a link in a new window, the guidelines recommend that the visitor be allowed to choose this outcome (by “right clicking” on the link). An exception to this guideline is the recommendation to always open documents in a new window to prevent users from accidentally closing the browser window when they close the document.

    By default, navigation links on modern SharePoint sites open as follows:

    Link points to a page or site in the same tenant (same site or another site): Links open in the same tab

    Link points to a document (same site or different site): Links open in a new tab

    Link points to an external (internet) site or document: Links open in a new tab

    In classic SharePoint sites with publishing features, you can choose to open navigation links in a new window. This allows you to consider the context for your site visitors and determine whether it might be helpful to open a link in a new window. There is no way to select how navigation links open in modern SharePoint sites.

    Had a conversation with an MS rep about links opening in a new tab. He stated it was by design. He asked me "1100 uservoice votes against, what about the hundreds of thousands of users who like that it behaves that way?"... I'd like to see that data and how they captured it.
