Where is the substack

Actually, Jacgui, it seems to be working after I selected file>move sub-stack to..., and set the stackfile for the first substack to the second substack. Or vice versa. We'll see what happens when I try to create the standalone. Maybe it won't work at that time; in which case I'll just move the second sub-stack up a level. Better try this before I invest too much more time with this. (smile)

Interesting!
