sorry to hear about your loss of time on this... The background issues are
also maddening when you don't know what happens...
had I heard you before... I've seen this issue since 6 years come and go...
As TAOO uses backgrounds a lot, I've seen this happen lots...
As Jacky said, if your cards lost the menus, a repeat loop to "place" the
menu on each card does the job.
But the structure possibilities of this feature are far greater than the
shortcomings - don't ask me for what ;). What would be nice would be have a
dialog warning the user that an operation would remove the group from all
the cards if you do it wrong or likewise ask the user if he wants the new
background group on all cards...

It took me 18 months to straighten out the menus in my stacks (this while
reading the docs, Dan's book, notes on this forum - I also consulted some to
the best brains in the Rev world). In the end the solution is simple:
1. Build menus on a stack before adding cards. If the stack has cards, build
the menus on a new one-card stack and import the data 2. Do not put the menu
group inside another group (like the usual background group). Also do not
put the background group inside the menu group (yes, this IS possible).
Geoff Canyon's Navigator plugin is essential for sorting out all of this.
How many potential users have we lost because of this ongoing menu madness?
