Highlighted record on opening

At present when a library opens the first record is highlighted. It would be an advantage to have the last record highlighted since that would be the most recent or even better might be the abilitity to select the opening record (maybe the last one opened?)

The record highlighted when a library opens is dependent upon the way the library is sorted. If you add Record Number as a display field and sort the library in descending order on that field, then the highlighted record will be the last one entered. You could also consider sorting by Last Updated Date. You can click sort using the headings (sorts on that one field) or use Tools -> Sort Library to sort on multiple fields.
