Well fooey...I was going to test this with FMPA 14 as well - that was working fine. And then I went back to 15 and it was also working fine. Perhaps it is one of those transient FM bugs - I did have it lock up on me earlier this morning and I had to force-quit FM. (It had exhibited other odd buggy behavior.)
But I have noticed it happening at many different times - it wasn't just this once. I imagine that over time it will crop up again. So for now, it's working fine in both 14 and 15. I'll keep an eye out for when it next crops up in 15, and then test it in 14 to see if it works there as well.
Omit Multiple Records will omit the current record and subsequent records. If you want to omit all records that you are browsing (the current found set), you need to make sure that you Go To Record[First] before doing that step.
It is possible that you were experiencing different behavior because you were not on the first record when performing Omit Multiple Records.
You can also achieve the result of browsing zero records with
Show All Records
Show Omitted Only
Thanks, Tom - that does the trick! I obviously missed that little aspect of this technique somewhere along the line.
