Just to make it absolutely clear:

Substacks of a standalone CANNOT be saved !!!
Every stack that is part of a standalone CANNOT be saved !!!

What i meant was to make a standalone from a single stack
(maybe the splash-screen or any stack that does not have
to be saved) and keeping all other stacks (or at least the ones
you want to save) in SEPERATE stacks !!!

Sorry for the capitals, but this is an extremely important fact.

I hope that helps.
