The reason why this doesn't work is that it can't find
a property named "line 1 of the text".
put "Blah" into line 1 of the text of button \
"Options" of card 1 of this stack
Or a bit clearer and better in case you have to make
put the text of button "Options" of card 1 of \
this stack into tMenuText
put "Blah" into line 1 of tMenuText
set the text of button "Options" of card 1 of \
this stack to tMenuText
Hope this helped,
