Hi John,

Revolution is a different animal from the traditional
development tools with a build/compile/test cycle: in
Rev, you are at the same time 'running' nd 'editing'
your application.

Thi means that when you go to 'run' mode, your stack
will not automatically close everything, go to the
first card and work from there, but will stay on the
same card in the stack that you've been editing.

If you're working in a single stack, just enter 'run'
mode, open the message box, and type:
  go first

This will tell Revolution to go to the first card of
your stack, which is where you want to go when testing
your application :-)

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
