Save Records as a PDF not working as expected in FileMakerGo

I've been using one of the Template files (Job Tracking) to help a friend with a solution for his flooring installation service. I've followed a number of the tutorials and made some heavy modification on my own. I'm using FileMaker Pro Advanced 17.0.4.400 to work on it and Filemaker Go on an iPad (17.0.5.500). I'm attempting to generate an estimate PDF to email to a customer. Everything works great on my MacBook Pro, but on the iPad the script step will only generate the PDF with the "Current Record" instead of "Records being browsed" as the script step is set to do.

 

Save Records as PDF [ With dialog: Off ; "$path" ; Records being browsed ; Create directories: Off ]

 

If I turn on the dialog and manually go into the PDF creation settings and choose "Records being browsed" instead, it appears to work. I can't figure it out. I haven't been able to find anything in a Google search, so I'm reaching out to the community.
