loading another stack from splash

Thanks Shadow, yes that was a typo in my email, not the hander. I'll cut/paste what I have

on preopenstack
   -- lock screen to true
   -- set visible to false
   answer the utargetstack of this stack
   go to stack (the utargetstack of this stack)
end preopenstack

There are some commented sections (suggested elsewhere) I want to test later. Notepad3 is just another stack residing in the same directory as Startup (might that be the problem? ie. I'm not providing a path or anything just the name of the stack), The bracketing did not help. Thanks

Hi Mark,

First off, is that a typo in your handler? -> "preopenstackit".
IMO, that should be "preOpenStack".
Now for your problem, can you try this in place of your code instead?
on preopenstack
   answer the utargetstack of this stack
   go to stack (the utargetstack of this stack)
end preopenstack

If that still didn't work please do tell so I can try to further help you.
