I think what you are doing, using preopenstack then openstack, is the
way to go.
Preopenstack takes place before some things in the Rev engine get fully
loaded. Thus, some commands might not work right in preopenstack.

But the same standalone opens to different cards based on the contents
file in the same folder, so moving the card to the first card isn't an
option... unless I shuffled the deck on each opening LOL.
I was looking for an easy way. It seems I needed to do the go to card
the OpenStack handler. If I had it in the preOpenStack handler, it was
If I set the visible of the stack to false in the preOpenStack handler
then to true at the end of the openStack hander, the standalone appears
opened to the desired card.
Seems like it should have been more straightforward than that.
I thought about having a new main stack, but that seems like a lot of
to shuffle the stacks around, etc.
