Window modes in Rev are handled with these commands:

 palette <stackName>

 modal  <stackName>

 modeless  <stackName>

 toplevel  <stackName>

You can also open a specific card or a stack as palette like this:

  open cd 3 of stack "MyPalette" as palette

  open card "Err444" of stack "MyErrs" as modal
