How can I choose whether a link opens in a new tab or in the same one?

By adding the
target
attribute to your
a
tags and setting its value to
_blank
will make it so when a user clicks a link it opens in a new tab.

And is there something in the Sanity UI that allows the admin to choose it when editing the content?

Do you already have link object? If so add a boolean field to allow admins to set whether the link should open in a new window or not

Your going to have to modify your link schema to include probably a boolean, then update your serializer to make that rendering decision for you. Its not an "out of the box" Sanity feature
