Jim,

I have two stacks: Test1 and Test2

I have a button in Test1 with the handler:

on mouseUp
    go stack "/Users/jimhurley/Revolution applications/test2.rev"
end mouseUp

And in the stack script of Test2 I have the handler:

on preopenstack
    beep
end preopenstack

A click on the button in Test1 does not produce a beep.

But the handler in the button:

on mouseUp
    go stack "/Users/jimhurley/Revolution applications/test2.rev"
    send "preopenstack" to stack "test2"
end mouseUp

does produce a beep--not surprisingly. But I am surprised that "go  
stack" or "open stack" do not get me a beep.

I am running RR 3.5 on a Mac.
