preOpenStack, openStack in Card 1?? Rules conformation.

You seem to have opened (a small but tangible) Pandora's box.
Several responses confidently talk about the "openStack" being
sent to Card 1.

Either of two things :

1 - They only have 1 card stacks ....... (so it works !)
2 - They don't read the same documentation as I do
       (Rev 2.6.1 Build 152 - Documentation - Dictionary - OpenStack)

The doc clearly states "the destination card". As I often :

            "go to card "x" of (sub)stack "y"

I assume this means "the openStack script in whatever card
you FIRST go to in the stack" This could cause a problem if
you have an "openstack" in a sub-stack .... !

This bugged me until I found a workaround (see my previous mail).

Do I read correctly, or have I got it all wrong ?

I await comments from (certainly not older, but) wiser users !
