Thanks, Geoff. I'll look into it.

BTW, I have an app I'm working on in HC, designed with an RR shell in mind
as well. As part of the editing process, there will be fields of phrase
categories and associated phrase lists in the group. If, for example, the
user adds a new category, the app must add a new field to hold the phrases,
plus, similarly, if a category is deleted, it must delete the associated
field. Also, it must have the ability to add, delete, or edit phrases in any
of the categories. In HC, the category list is a Shared Text bg field at
present, operated from the HC app (or a player).

Will the Standalone Builder help me handle this as well?
