There are basically two ways to proceed.

You can save the data in a separate stack or text file. You can either use
the separate stack as your window, or read the data into your standalone's
window at startup (after saving changes at shutdown).

The first approach is best if your application is based on working with
documents (then the separate stack becomes your document); the second
approach is better if the text to be saved consists of preference settings
or some similar data.
