Hi Bailey,

Just thought I'd add a little thing to the answers by
Ken and Jeanne.
If you want to make your stack multi-lingual at some
point in the future, it might be more interesting to
find out which button is pressed: the first, second,
third,...
In such cases, the following piece of code comes in
handy:
  on menuPick pNewItem
    put return & (the text of me) & return into \
      tText
    put return & pNewItem & return into tNewItem
    go card lineOffset(tNewItem, tText)
  end menuPick
The whole trick with prepending and appending returns
is to ensure that if you have two items "History B"
and "History" it still picks the correct line.

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
