Hi Andrew,

you can set the height and width or loc or rect etc. of "the templatestack" before 
you create a new stack!

set the height of the templatestack to 128
set the width of the templatestack to 256
set the bottomleft of the templatestack to 0, item 4 of the screenrect
create stack

Will place a new stack with your predefined dimensions in the bottom left corner of the screen.
See "the templateXXX" in the docs (Rev Dictionary).
