Would it be possible to add a new DOM Action to open a new window? I want to be able to 'preview' an item from the DOM and a Popup is too small as it's a full HTML page (like the 'Published Site' and 'Draft Site' links work).

I was looking for a new window, not a popup. ie. target="_blank". Previewing a full HTML page in a popup doesn't work well.

Sorry, let me provide a little more context for this one. I have a DOM full of Invoices. Currently, in order to preview an HTML invoice, you have to edit the Invoice and click a 'Preview' link. The link opens a new window to show the fully rendered HTML invoice (similar to what clicking the 'Published Site' link does in the CMS). I was hoping to be able to add a DataObjectManagerAction so users could just click on a 'Preview' button instead of having to edit the record first. A popup is too small to show the full invoice.
