opening a stack without changing current stack order?

I need the formattedHeight and similar properties which only work on
currently open cards.  The processing, however, should be in the background
and invisible to the user.

I used to use

push card
open invisible card this of stack that
pop card

But now that I've gone to palettes instead of groups for controls, the
recently closed palette pops up instead of the initial card/

What is the best way to get that card accessible without changing my stack
