Ken, this worked brilliantly!
I was using a "type tab" to tab out of the current field and force a
closeField, but (as far as I could tell) it was leading to crashing
the standalones and even crashing the whole IDE.
"select empty" on mouseDown works beautifully!
(I put it in the card script, not a frontscript... since my menus
only have a MenuPick, and buttons only have mouseUp, no mouseDowns
were being trapped)
I did find it in the docs under "select":
"Use the 'select empty' form to deselect all objects and text."
