template stacks

Am I the only one who doesn't make all of his stacks the same size? :)

I generally don't care what size they're created at.  I resize them as I 
work by dragging the edges, as users do.

In those cases where I need a fixed size, the specific dimensions are 
rarely discernible in advance, something I'll need to figure out after 
I've done the layout.

In the rarer case where I need multiple stacks of a specific size, 
chances are I need more common elements than just size, so I'll make one 
how I need it and then clone it.

But those seem pretty rare to me.  On desktop my windows tend to be 
different sizes, and on mobile it's important that they be responsive to 
any screen size; in either case the specific dimensions at the moment of 
creation seem of little value.
