It sounds like you didn't place the menu on that card, so you are seeing 
a blank place. You need to place the menu group on every card in the stack.

Mac users should always develop with the menu showing at the top of the 
stack window. That is, turn off both "preview as menubar" and "set as 
stack menu" until you are ready to build a standalone. Being able to see 
the stack as Windows users will see it allows you to place objects on 
the card in the right positions, and tells you immediately if you've 
forgotten to put a menu on the card.

When you are ready to build, turn those options back on and make sure 
destroystack is set to false.
