Stacks and Sub Stacks

You probably mean script-only stacks.
Substacks are just stacks, but they live in the same file as the mainStack. It helps with organization, and when you save one, you save them all. You can only have one mainStack, but as many subStacks as you like.
For me, I have projects that use substacks for, say, data entry. The subStack is built just for that purpose.
When making a standalone, substacks are included in the final package.
Just practice a bit.

Subject: Stacks and Sub Stacks

Looking for some good examples of the Main stack used with sub stacks.
Looking for best practices on usage. Also using text-only stacks.
