Question re large project organization

Folks:
Just a gripe about the standalone builder. The bug I reported still stands, though.

This is my fault, though and it leaves me wishing there was a clear explanation of the standalone builder and where files get put for various configurations. This one was the checkbox on the “Copy Files” pane that said “Copy referenced files”, and gave a location that didn’t sound too bad. Well, I did want to copy the files, so I checked it. But then some of the referenced text files disappeared into the “great beyond”. Finally, after spending a couple of hours preparing a test file for a bug report, and I couldn’t get the problem to re-occur, I found that the checkbox “Copy Referenced Files”, if unchecked, was the solution.

File Paths: I assume I need to modify the file paths to various included stacks and data files to fit where the standalone builder puts them. This means getting the main stack file path, and creating new paths to locations like “Content/Resources/_MacOS/….” I remember something about the system taking care of file path changes between the dev environment and the standalone environment, but I haven’t made that work.

Anyway, just venting.
Best,
Bill
