controls on each card

This is really a great example of why the documentation needs to be

All you do is group the controls that you want to appear on new cards -
then set the background behavior of that group to true.

It took me a little while to figure out how to navigate between
selecting groups and selecting the controls within groups. The way Rev
handles groups and backgrounds is really very powerful - lets you do
lots of cool stuff - but it certainly is confusing at first.

Good luck

Hi Folks

This is a silly one and AGAIN is very basic.

I have a card that has a button on it that creates a new card. OK
However, when I click on it, a new card is produced. It does not have on
the buttons of the [previous card.

This I know only requires something set via the IDE ( I read it the
night in Dan's book, a great buy) however, I have trawled the book and 
cannot find which box to tick.

I don't want to read the whole thing again word for word to find this
it is late (and I haev a habit of speed reading and missing things). So
someone send me the info. Naturally it is  RTFM :-) but the book is 321 
pages :-)

THanks in advance
