Hi Brad,

1. Have a look at the newTool message.
2. Have a look at the resumeStack message.
3. There are many ways to keep images you want to use as icons: both  
you mentioned may be used. Another one I use often is to put the  
images on the first card (nevertheless they can be accessed from any  
card, even in a substack, but it's more handy to know that you follow  
a rule to locate them easily) without hiding them but just putting  
them out of the card window (bottomRight at "-1,-1" for instance).

Hope this helps.
