Using OS 10.2.2, Rev 1.1.1

Having successfully built a standalone(?  ) from a single stack file 
consisting of a main stack
(no user entry and save not required) and several substacks (user 
entries are to be saved and each substack has a save script in it).

various stacks and is saved for use the next time the application is 

Opening the data folder all the way, the saved substack files(?) , when

There is no need for the user to be aware of the data folder.

Question 2:   The recent discussions RE: Standalone Button Font Bloat 
doesn't mention anything about using Tips 1.  Are these two procedures 
the same?  If not, an  example of the script required in the .app main 
stack(Splash stack only) to open the .rev main stack (all substacks) 
would be helpful.

  Question 3:  Ref Question 2. If this procedure is used, what entries 
are to be entered in the build standalone?
