Command Keys Not Working

Bizarre: I opened both stacks in the same standalone engine  the Edit 
button in one works on any field, but not the very same edit button in 
the other stack. getting a profile on each button, there is not 
discernible different. So I deleted that button in the stack where it 
did not work and copied over again the other button.

Now it works in the stand alone.

What I *had* done  on the first copy and paste was removed the & in 
front of button text items.

This time I left them in... now it works...

"go figure...."
