Active window and mouse location

Hi Douglas,

Apologies if I'm misunderstanding the problem or if someone already 
suggested this, but won't the stack come to the front if you just say 
"go to stack tMyStack" ?  Seems to me that would make it the topStack, 
which is apparently what you want (as I read it).

Or if the stack is a mainStack, you could say "launch document 
tMyStackFilepath" and the same thing would happen.

Another simple two-line approach:

    push current card of stack tTheOneBehind
    pop card

The push/pop approach should work in any LC version. (I'm working in LC 9)

Thanks -
Phil Davis

I will, however, keep this in mind for other purposes.
