A potentially better solution (which insulates them entirely from 
changing tools!) would be to either send your tools to your colleagues 
as plugins (which they put in the My LiveCode/Plugins folder), or send 
them to them after setting the 'style' property of your tool stacks to 
"modeless". (In the latter case you can set the style back to "topLevel" 
to edit).

In either case, the stacks will load into the IDE permanently in browse 

Hope this helps!
