Rev Icons

--Rev's icon picker will display images that appear in the current stack if
you choose "This Stack" from the ---popup menu. But (if I remember right) it
won't display images in any other stacks, even if they are in the
----message hierarchy. You need to make a stack the current one to see what
images it contains.

I'm storing all my icon images in a card in the main stack of my
application. When I'm in other sub-stacks and try to use that image in a new
button it's not only not visible but sometimes even pasting in the ID
doesn't work.

Is there a better way to store all your icons? Ideally I'd like to have a
particular ID be an "edit" icon the same throughout every card and substack
and then if I decide to change that icon slightly I would like to do that in
the place it is stored and then see those changes reflected everywhere that
ID is. Presently what happens is putting a replacement image in increments
to a new ID and then changing the ID in that image makes no difference or a
confusing hodge-podge of difference.

Any suggestions on a better way to catalogue the interface elements in a
project and be able to make adjustments in the design easily?
