I'm adding a huge amount of hyperlink content to an Office 365 SharePoint page that I paste in with the following format:

[[ link name #1 | www.link1.com]]
[[ link name #2 | www.link2.com]]
[[ link name #3 | www.link3.com]]

If I create the hyperlinks manually I have the option to have the link "open in a new tab" is there way to have these links (in markup format) open in new tabs without manually editing each link?

I’m afraid it is not possible in SharePoint Online Markdown web part.

I’ve read a few posts suggesting that we can use plain HTML in Markdown to achieve this requirement. (One example here: Can I create links with 'target=“_blank”' in Markdown?) However, this feature is not supported by Marked, which is the power engine for Markdown web part.

There is a post in SharePoint UserVoice suggesting the same idea: markdown html support
