"The MergExt suite of externals now comes as part of your LiveCode

"To start using the externals, unzip the MergExt download and you will
see that you have a folder for each external, which contains a demo and
an lcext file. You need to add this lcext file to the copy files pane in
your LiveCode *standalone settings* to start using that particular
external in your app."

Does that mean a one-time exercise, or that one has to include the
.lcext in the standalones settings for each stack one wishes to
use it in?

Like any other inclusion, it needs to be copied to the standalone when it is built. If the standalone opens other mainstacks, those don't need inclusions, only the app stack needs them. You only have to do this once and standalone settings will remember.

If you build a standalone from an entirely different stack, then you'd need to copy the external to that one too as part of the normal standalone settings setup.
