There used to be an option in the standalone builder to include these
standard images, but that disappeared a while ago. It always seemed a
bit extravagant to include every image when you on;y needed one or two
anyway. My preference is to place the images in my stack, give them a
high ID number so they cannot conflict with any standard icons, then
hide them. After that your buttons can use them as icons whenever

Some people like to make a 2 card stack with all the images on the 2nd
card, or to make a sub-stack that contains all their images. If you do
either of these, then you don't have to hide them. I guess it just
depends how many images you need to deal with.
