How to go to newly cloned card?

Yes, this is one of the things that was driving me mad. Upon creating
the card, according to the literature I should have been "taken" there
(to the freshly cloned card).
The button with that handler is on one card, a so called master card and
the card being cloned is another card in the same stack. I wonder if
the difference is that I wasn't on the cloning target card when invoking
the clone command by using something like:
clone this card
However, as I posted just before now. After shutting down in disgust
for awhile, when opening up this stack project, the handler I posted
about works like a charm.
I will check the use of "it" as you pointed out, thank you. It very
well may be dodgy. I was attempting to work to the transcript entry for
the "clone" command. What had caught my interest was: "The clone
command places the name property of the newly created object in the it
variable." I see now that this is not exactly what I wrote in the
handler either. Thanks for the tip to that point. I will correct that
and see what happens.
Live and oh so hopefully, I learn.
