Lookups: Add records in 'Related Lists' view

Here's an example of what I mean: I've got two tables in my app: one is a list of documents, the other is a list of types of document. A document record contains a lookup to a document type, which means that by viewing a document type record I can see related records in the 'Related Lists' view.

It would be great if I could add a new record directly into that view so that the lookup field is automatically set. That would avoid having to come out back into the documents table and add a new record separately.

        First of all: Great nifty app!

        I support this feature request. That is my most urgent one.
        My challenge:
        Simplified Patient database: one patient has null, one or many sessions.
        If I have lets say hundreds of patients it gets very very cumbersome to do the lookup for patients in the Sessions table (module). Far easier: Searching for the correct patient in the Patient table (module) select related tables Session and having the option to add a session table entry via a '+' Symbol at the bottom of the display and the corresponding look-up column populated with the selected value from Patient (in the Session table)!
