The easiest way is to create a very tall card with enough space to lay 
out all your fields. The card can be taller than the screen if 
necessary. Then group all the fields and objects on the card. In the 
property inspector, set the group to have a vertical scrollbar. Then 
resize both the group and the stack window to be smaller than the card 
so that the scrollbar becomes active. If you set the size of the group 
to be the same size as the stack window, it will look just like a 
scrolling document.
