Nice thing about Rev - you don't have to specify where an object is,
unless there is more than one of that type of object with the same
If you have imported a HyperCard stack, then HCaddressing is turned on
and that does use the card/background nomenclature, but for a new
stack, it doesn't matter - just call them all by unique names and you
don't have to worry.
P.S. I don't frequent the forums so I can't answer for them, but there
is certainly no problem about asking any questions on this list.
