What does this "Hint" mean?

Hi Preston,

I guess that you tried that from a stack of yours that has no  
specific menu bar.
To call a specific menu item in another stack, you have to be more  

on mouseUp
   send "menuPick New Card" to btn "Object" of stack "revMenuBar"
end mouseUp

Note that this form can't work in a standalone, in the IDE only where  
the code in the revmenubar stack will do the job for you :-)

Best Regards from Paris,
