I checked and did find that properties for purging stack and windows on close was checked in my splash stack. I unchecked these properties and created a Mac standalone that did not show any cutting off the card and shifting the card down. Thanks! 

I think that a dialog or something in the IDE should indicate this procedure for creating Mac and windows standalones. There certainly should be a movie tutorial illustrating this. I agree with what someone had stated on the RevList or ImproveList that some of these basics are not illustrated in tutorials. Instead they concentrate on somewhat more advanced features.
