...oh, you had me hoping for a quick fix then - never mind ;-)

The syntax for mine is so very simple: recognize the stack to which you wish to return and "push this cd"; when you're ready to return to that stack, regardless of where you may have gone in the interim just "pop cd" and you'll be back to the cd of the stack in which you "pushed". Obviously, not rocket science. You may have gone to a lot of different cards in different stacks between the push and the pop. However, I've never used it in a revlet.
