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  
precise:

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,
Eric Chatonet
