No way to place objects in stack background

                 Key: SQ-1177
                 URL: http://tracker.squeakland.org/browse/SQ-1177
             Project: squeakland
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: etoys-linux
            Reporter: Edward Mokurai Cherlin
            Priority: Critical
             Fix For: etoys 5.0

In building stacks, it is critical to be able to place morphs of various kinds in the background of cards, so that multiple cards with the same background can be replicated. However, the function for putting a morph in a background is inaccessible in Etoys to Go 5.0. Documentation on stacks says to bring up the stacks and cards menu..., which is not available, and use the background field, individual values command, which is not available. The Morph addStackItemsTo: method would create a stack and cards submenu, but it has no senders. I do not see where to invoke it that would satisfy its preconditions.

	stackSubMenu _ MenuMorph new defaultTarget: self.
	(owner notNil and: [owner isStackBackground]) ifTrue:
		[self isShared
				[self couldHoldSeparateDataForEachInstance
						[stackSubMenu add: 'Background field, shared value' translated target: self action: #putOnBackground.
						stackSubMenu add: 'Background field, individual values' translated target: self action: #becomeSharedBackgroundField]
						[stackSubMenu add: 'put onto Background' translated target: self action: #putOnBackground]]
				[stackSubMenu add: 'remove from Background' translated target: self
