Thanks Jacque,

You have a gift for clear and concise answers, and getting to the gist of a question.

The main thing I wondered was whether newer versions of the engine have been messing around with the message path. It sounds like the short answer is "Yes."

BackgroundBehavior is set to "true." If it were turned off, I would notice because new cards wouldn't look right.

I have learned for the first time that backgroundBehavior also affects the message path. Something to think about...

What is a card group?

Do you mean to say it is necessary to "send" a message to a card group?


Cheers,
