Stacks and Custom properties

Bob, good point. In my case I am using several standalone stacks, so when
the standalone opens, it reads data from a remote location (database
or Google Sheets) and saves them as custom variables. In addition there are
variables that are created throughout a session that are saved in a similar
way. Then these values are available to all stacks throughout the session.
Glad to hear of any thoughts on this.
