card x in the mainstack. The user can reorder the images in the
horizontal field by simply cutting and pasting them around on the same
"line" as it were... then when the preview closes, the main stack is
Don't know if this helps much, but i tried groups and it was crazy...
and this worked. If you want i can send the stack off list.
