New Record Request in Browse Mode Triggers on Commit Layout Script Trigger

Filemaker's documentation states quite clearly that New Record Request in Browse mode create a new blank record.


I have learned that this also means that it triggers the Layout Script trigger On Record Committ


So my nice neat script that checks various things before a record is committed is fired to run on this new blank record


which make no "sense" to a naive user who does not understand or want to understand the underlying Filemaker internal logic.


So I am trying to figure out a simple way to trap this and not run the check script on when new records requests happen in browse mode.


Any ideas on a reliable dependable way to catch this inside a script would be appreciated.
