Stack window/screen sizes

Basically, you set the positions and sizes of all your objects in the 'resizestack' message (Look it up in the dictionary). Beware that you need to use the 'width' and 'height' of the card, or the parameters supplied to the message, not the 'rectangle' of the stack (because the stack rect is relative to the 'screenrect'). 
Additionally on 'opencard', or on 'startup', you set the rect of the stack to something that fits onto the screen.
People do expect you to keep their chosen window size between launches. If you save settings somewhere, you can simply save the rect of the stack there, and retrieve it from there again on 'openstack'.

How do I deal with this? Is this what the Geometry manager is for and if so, is there good tutorial out there for it?
