Change in behavior for duplicate record command?

I have noticed a difference in how Filemaker handles the duplicate record command (ctrl+D) in FM14.

 

In Filemaker 13 as far as I can tell the Duplicate command always would duplicate the parent record that the layout being viewed is based on.

 

IN FM14 I have noticed that if a portal row is selected and the relationship allows for creation of records then ctrl+D results in a duplicate portal row.  Has anyone else noticed this change?  I tried a search but didn't find anything relevant.  Fortunately one of my users noticed that a script was acting funny and pointed it out to me before a big mess was made of our data.

 

Is this a known feature that I had missed or is this a bug?  It is easy enough to work around, but a change like this could make a real mess in a big looping script.

 

Cheers,

JJ
