ITX should allow the functional map to be opened in the new window.

Right now, while doing mapping in ITXA, if we want to move from one functional map to another or to the main map or vice-versa. The new maps always open in the same window which makes it quite difficult to work with the mapping. especially when we need to switch between different maps to look for a data which we will be using or different cards of the maps.

What I want from ITXA is that only the main map should be allowed to be opened in the main ITXA window. With all the functional maps users should get the function to decide whether they want the functional map to be opened in the same window or in a new pop-up window making the mapping easier for us.

Please see the attached document for more details.
