I'll support what Devin says here. This is one of those cases where
it's actually better *not* to have HyperCard experience since you'd
have less unlearning to do. Forget everything you know about HyperCard
backgrounds - runrev does things completely differently. HC had a
limited paradigm to work with and you'll find that rr has a much
richer palette in terms of tools and objects.

I find that it's easier not to think of the "background" word at all
and just deal with where groups are going to be in the message
