Strangely enough, I still believe that it is possible to create
amazing interactive stacks in this platform, with a clever use
of the commands show, hide, visual effects and go to card.
After all, we could use only what we need.

There are many great features of this platform that I never
have explored, but it's good to know that they are available,
if I ever need them. Hopefully, a new text field control and
a zoom property for groups will appear in a near future.
