Data Grid objects in standalones

The problem with letting the compiler handle this is that I cannot access the Data Grid Template stack from the main stack if it is not a part of the engine file. The standalone setup dialog is somewhat confusing in the sense that it seems as if it is possible to choose which substack files to include with the engine file and which substack files to branch out in a folder of its own. As far as I have discovered it is all or nothing. I guess I will have to dive into the code of the main stack again and write relative paths to all the stacks I don’t want to be a part of the engine. Luckily there are not very many of them, and they are not called from more than a couple of handlers.

That way the app stacks are not actually a part of the read-only application, they are like support files that can be modified if put in the right place, which the compiler does for you.

When I try to manually enter data into fields in the data grid object it works alright as long as the main stack and the substacks are built as a single file, but not when I try to build the standalone with the substacks as separate files. I guess the reason is that the main stack loses connection with the Data Grid Template stack once this is moved into a separate file. I would however prefer to have the substacks as individual files in order to be able to upgrade them easily, without the need for an upgrade of the application as such. Are there any solutions to this problem that does not require a total rebuild of the application structure.
