The width and height of a stack

I think I have a corrupted card. I noticed that when resizing the card some objects change their position. When I look at the object’s properties however, I am not using the geometry manager. I will probably try to re-create the card.

If I put a breakpoint after the first sizing statement, it never reaches the breakpoint.
