Here's one more way to deal with the problem. Keep destroystack set to 
false as before, and destroywindow as well. Add this to a preOpenStack 

if the platform = "macOS" and the environment is not "development"
then set the menubar of this stack to "myMenuGroup"

Build your standalone with the menubar property turned off; that is, 
build it as though it were for Windows with the menu group showing. When 
your standalone launches, it will set the menubar on a Mac and the stack 
will resize as you'd expect.

I've used this and it has always worked.
