How to disable the add new record button in table view (filemaker 11 pro)

Post

Hello.  When I'm working with my data in table view, there is the annoying "plus" button that appears on the ghost bottom row.  I frequently need to click the left margin to select a record I want to work with - but if I inadvertently hit that plus button I get a new unwanted record.  The Edit->Undo function doesn't work.  I never want to create a new record this way - I have my own custom buttons, or I can go to the top menu for this.  Is it possible to delete or disable either the plus button - or the entire left margin - I can select my records using my own fields; i don't need filemaker's left hand margin.

thanks in advance - sorry for sounding bitter, its just happened too many times today! :)
