We've been warned that there are problems with menus on multiple
cards, however I have successfully and easily added menus to a single
card stack, where background groups are switched in and out of
visibility with no problems, and the data is provided by a database.
Does using multiple cards in a stack define one as a 'cardHead'?
Not using menus is not always an option when users expect them.
