I don't think you've got it wrong.
As a quick test, I made two stacks "path_tester" and "stackA"
In the card script of "path_tester" I put this script:
put empty into field "pathlist"
put the filename of this stack into tPath
put tPath into field "pathlist"
set the itemDel to "/"
put item 1 to -2 of tPath into tDir
if there is a stack (tDir & "/" & "stackA.rev") then
toplevel (tDir & "/" & "stackA.rev")
I built this into a standalone.
In the card script of stackA, I put this script:
if there is a stack "path_tester" then
put cr & the filename of this stack after field "pathlist" of
I then placed stackA.rev in the Contents/MacOS folder inside the
On running the standalone, I get the following in field "pathlist".
This is with Rev 2.6.1 on OS X 10.4.3 (but I'm pretty sure it also
worked this way in earlier versions).
Can you show us the script that is producing the strange result?
