TemplateStacks or SubStacks, Which is better?

Hi Cal,

The templateStack is something that only exists in memory. A 
templateStack is only displayed when you make a new stack. A substack 
can exist both in memory and on disk and you don't need to make a new 
stack to display it.

What you will use, depends on what you want to do. Perhaps you tell a 
little more about that?

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
