Possible to stack raws and jpgs already in Organizer

It would be nice to be able to stack raw and jpg files that are already in Organizer. I know that you can do this when importing from a camera or card reader. I just imported 2000+ jpgs and raws, and Organizer crashed before stacking the files. Deleting and reimporting the files is not an option, since I the risk deleting files imported earlier...

That won't happen if the files are already in the organizer. Version sets can only be created when the version is created. But that's an old question with a very simple solution: use stacks instead of version sets. You may use the feature to automatically suggest photo stacks.
On the other hand, the automatic stacking feature at import time has a big drawback: it chooses the raw file as the 'top of stack', which is not the preferred choice for an efficient workflow in the organizer.
I have stopped shooting both jpegs and raws, only raw.
