Hi Richard,

The engine should send a menuPick to your Help menu
button, to make it easy for you to program it
So in your 'Help' button :
on menuPick pWhichItem
  switch pWhichItem
  case "About"
    go card 1 of stack "MyAbout" as modal
  case ...
  end switch
end menuPick

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
