doesn't recognize the current card and stack

Thanks! I’ll do that. I parsed the “target” to get the source, then added it to each field command. Much easier to just set the default stack, tho. The description of “default stack” in the docs didn’t seem to do what I wanted, but perhaps I should have tried it before doing the other fixes.
