    FileMaker Pro's new New Window feature allows you to easily isolate a single record for exporting or other functions without having to store the user's original found set or using an expensive plugin. The New Window function retains the same found set, current record, sort order, layout, mode, dimensions, location, etc. of the original window. from there, it's as easy as using the same FileMaker Pro 6 and earlier scripting to isolate a record by showing all records, omitting the current record, then finding the single omitted record. After you export the record you can close the window and return the user to their original found set of record.
