Not sure about too general, but you have to be careful when you use localized terms such as "this stack" when you are navigating around. There is always something comforting to specify a direct object reference. Were you on the stack you intended when you executed that line?


Not that such keywords as "last" (as in "set the name of the last button") don't have fabulous power and flexibility.

Craig,

That worked!

The command I used was “hide this stack” which was on a button on a card in the 
main stack. I guess I too general.

Thanks,
Bill
