Yep the printing artifacts with "lock screen" are on both Mac and 
Windows, Rev.1.1.1

What do you mean " make the screen match it ". The docs say don't set 
formatForPrinting if the stack is going to be edited. Does that mean 
edited in the IDE, or a user typing in  a field?
I can't have a duplicate set of cards for printing, because when it's 
done this app is going to have upwards of a hundred cards, and I can't 
maintain two sets.

I was closing it and reopening.. maybe the remove from memory part is 
what I was missing.
