Button Icons wont show up when powered by my standalone

I agree that there should be an option to automatically import icons  
used when building a standalone. It is an obvious gotcha that a lot  
of new users get tripped over.

I find it cumbersome that to add the image you have to add it and  
then make the image invisible which makes it a two step process.  
Maybe a feature request would be to add the image and then make it  
invisible automatically. That way it will be in the Image Library  
when you want to use it but it doesn't clutter the stack you are  
making with the image you then have to hide.
