Switching Mainstacks

In the Application Overview, select your actual file (not one of the 
stacks). Then expand the window and you will see "Show stack mover" at 
the bottom of the extended part of the window. (If you see "Show stacks" 
instead then you are already in stack mover.)

This allows you to move stacks and to make any of the substacks into the 
main stack, so create your splash screen as a substack and then use the 
stack mover to make it the main. The only problem I have encountered 
with this technique is that the scripts in the stack script of your main 
stack are available to all substacks. If you make another stack into the 
mainstack, you may need to move stack scripts from the previous main 
stack into the new one, so they are still accessible.
