Are you opening the HyperCard stacks in Rev? If so, you should read
Jacque's excellent tutorial on the subject at

Apart from that, I don't understand what you mean. Are you saying that
imported stacks don't have their buttons, or that the imported buttons
don't have scripts or what?

As a general rule, I recommend creating a new stack in Rev and copying
the scripts over with the necessary changes, instead of importing
directly, but I have had no major problems with either method.
