This helps a lot. Thanks for the explanation. I'll work on it tonight and
let you know how it goes. As for opening the prefs substack in a hidden
mode, I thought you had to do that to make it available. At least that¹s the
only way I could get it to work, but I'll see how it goes once I get all the
open/preopen stack handlers cleaned up.
