Persistent data?

Hi folks,

I want to make some special control panels. There are a number of
approaches, like putting it in front cards, using palette windows, etc.

One of these might be using substacks. I don't entirely understand the
concept of substacks, same problem with 'groups' as opposed to backgrounds.
(I wish I had a visual flow layout...if I get it figured out to where I can
do that, I'll post it. Pictures always speak louder than words for me).

For example: Which should I do...keep the operating body in the main stack
and make the control panels in substacks? This SEEMS like the right way, but
I've seen some recent posts that lead me to believe the visa-versa would
work better, though I'm not sure why.

Can substacks open in a new window (different size)?

Best regards,
Ken N.
