Hopefully, this is the final email on this subject. I am still having
error problems with the suggested handler. Timing does seem to be an
issue here after the cloning of a referenced card.
What works is to break up the handler with a send in 30 milliseconds
message as follows:
if there is a card "Empty Card" of this stack
go card "Empty Card"
clone card "BulletWeightsMasterCard" of this stack
set the name of this card to "Empty Card"
-- go card "Empty Card" in 30 milliseconds -- Rev 2.1.2 throws
an error highlighting the 30 with this construction
send marchingOrder to me in 30 milliseconds
go card "Empty Card"
This works and does so consistently without error. Odd little work around.
