If I have a card with 1 object situated on it and it is selected
and the inspector for it is  open, and I then make a new object on that
card the inspector changes to take into account the new object.

So . . . why . . .

when I have a card inspector open and I either make a new card or
move to another card does the inspector NOT show the new card, instead
of the stack?

This behaviour seems inconsistent.
