Thanks Jacqi. It's been ages since I've worked with HC, but I question that menus would have been in backgrounds. They would have been in stack scripts the majority of the time. I think; although I can see how implementing menus from background scripts might have been on some use.

BTW, I'm not eager to argue the point.  (smile)

Menus are almost always background groups, so they are included in a copied LC card. The only difference between LC and HC behavior is that you can have more than one background behind a card in LC, so when you copy the card, you get them all.
