Jacque, are you sure it isn't in the mainstacks. I modified teh  
script I just posted as follows:


on mouseUp
   put "/Users/dave/Desktop/proptest.rev" into tStackFile

   put the myProp of stack tStackFile into field 1
   put the short name of stack  tStackFile into tShortname
   put cr & (there is a stack tShortname) after field 1
   put cr & (tShortname is among the lines of the mainstacks) after  
field 1
   delete stack tStackFile
   put cr & (there is a stack tShortname) after field 1
    put cr & (tShortname is among the lines of the mainstacks) after  
field 1

end mouseUp

I now get

true
true
false
false

And I seem to remember that Rev uses the mainstacks somewhere to list  
all stacks in memory.

Cheers
Dave
