Hi Chipp,

Thanks for this, I changed the preference (was set to don't close) 
but it made no difference.

Yes, the files have different Stack Names.

One other thing I noticed that is odd and it may have something to do 
with what is going wrong.

When I have the Stack Window open in the IDE (with "Pointer" mode 
selected) the IDE's menu is showing. If I then select the Stack 
Inspector and then click anywhere within the Inspector window, the 
menu bar changes to my App's menu bar!!!!!

This is with the Dummy Place Holder Stack open which holds the 
menubar and calls other stacks depending on the menu item selected by 
the user.
