No current list selected using $define in Studio 5.2.3

Hello David,

I think I found the problem.  I used a build list command which caused there
to be a current list selected.  I don't suppose they have made a
$buildlist() notation? :)

That is not a bug. The new Studio-style list commands, like list. 
$define or list.$search, does not depend on the 'current list' at all. They
do not require the current list to be set. They do not use it at all. So try
to get used to using them. There is very little that you can do with lists
that require the 'current list' and the older commands that depend on it any

What exactly are you doing that requires the current list being set.  
Possibly we can suggest an alternative using the newer list commands.
