Thanks  Jacqueline .
It Does not work either .

What I can not undrstand is why it DOES work when :
1- save the stack scripte
2- close
3- open stack (from file menu without quiting LC )

 while it DOES NOT  ( always goes to card one) when:
1- Save the stack scripte
2- Cose
3- Quit LC
4-Double click on stack  stack (from file menu without quiting live code )



All the best
