I have thought for a long time that Menus in Rev/LiveCode should actually be a special kind of object unto themselves, not a group of objects set as a background. However, consider Windows, where menus are a part of the window itself, and you will begin to see why it almost has to work this way.

> In HC, menus were not part of the card, so that was not an issue. In MC/Rev/LC, menus are implemented as a group of buttons, and as such, that group is on a card being copied, whence it, the group, is copied with the card. This is what Jacque meant. It may be confusing, particularly if the destination stack has its own menu group, but it is expected behavior.
