Hi Mark,

Why don't you create an image, paste it wherever you want into your stack; then when you want it to appear, just show it; when you're through with it, then hide it. I've done this a number of times. I usually create such images using MacDraft, but I'm sure you can do the same with various other drawing programs. You have complete control of what the image contains.
