Card window & portal row creation

I really like the new card windows and have been trying to use them to show related (= filtered) data in a portal. The user should be able to create a new portal row inside this card window but this somehow doesn't work...


The issue

The main layout is showing a bunch of different school / semester data. One can target a certain line item (module) and open the corresponding exams which belong to that module.


Inside this card window the user should be able to add a new portal row (triggered via script).


Unfortunately I can only add a new row when there already is a previous entry meaning that I cannot create / target a new portal row in an empty portal.

This is different though if I am residing in the card window layout itself, it works flawlessly there...?!

How come this is different in the card window vs. the native layout? Something I'm missing conceptually?


Due to the fact that I am incorporating an 'edit-mode' I need this to be a portal and cannot simply create a new record because the data shouldn't even commit before the user has pressed a 'save'-button...


Thanks for your suggestions!
