This is normal for Macintosh. It's been discussed in multiple threads in the past, and tripped me up when I first came across it. Your problem is not that there is a separate menu for each card. The 20 pixel space at the top of the card that is not visible is normal. 

In your openCard handler (preOpenCard may also work) set the menuBar of this stack to thisCardsMenuBar
