Not a bug -- It relates to what folders the PCBs are in, in relation to the 
schematic...

1) If there's only one PCB in the same folder as the current schematic, there's no 
board prompt at all. (My usual arrangement -- so
I was surprised that some indicated they always got the prompt.)

2) If there's more than one in the same folder, you get prompted, BUT there's no 
"create new document" button! (This threw me for a
bit, I don't normally see this button & it took me a while to figure out how to get it 
to appear.)

3) If there's more than one PCB in the DDB, but none in the same folder as the 
schematic, you get the prompt dialog, including the
"new document" button.

Frank had case (3), and the new board got created in the same folder, which then put 
him into case (1), where there's no prompt.

Frank,
        the only time that I see a particular query for a target board is
when there is more then one board in the database. Not to say that there
isn't a selection point in one of the windows along the path, I haven't
noticed.

Sincerely,
