Dropped Menu Bar

Hi Joe,

1. Open your backup stack and rename all stacks in it (main stack and  
sub stacks) to avoid conflicts when opening your current stack in  
2. Open your stack in progress.
3. Both projects appear in the App browser: use left click to get the  
contextual menu that allows to copy any object or copy/paste directly  
from a stack to another.

. Rev does not allow to copy objects that are not currently on-screen.
. In your case objects positions should be respected.

Good luck.
