That's the general idea. You find the stack that contains the images you are using as button icons, make a copy of it, then include it with your mainstack. You could even make it a substack of your mainstack to keep it in the same stack file. Then, in the stack that uses the images, include the statement, probably in a preOpenStack handler:

  start using stack "myIconStack" --or whatever it's called.

Once you do that all images in the used stack are available to be used in the calling stack.
