Help with Stacks

Friday, April 18, 2014 by Malvegil_Raven | Discussion: Docks

I have followed the instructions for setting up a stack icon on the dock.  And it seems to be working, but the only thing that is showing up in the stack is: "Show in Explorer".  How do I add more icons/shortcuts to a stack?

I am running Object Dock v2.1 & StandaloneStack v2.07 and followed Frankell's instructions for setting up a stack on a dock.

Right now I'm just trying to get all my Microsoft Office Icons to show on 1 stack.

Thanks for any help - Lance.

Hi Malvegil_Raven the stacks are "folder sensitive" !

create a new folder wherever you want (I suggest in the same StandaloneStack2 folder)  call the folder MOffice or whatever you like now create all the MSOffice shortcuts you need and move them in the MOffice folder

double click on  StandaloneStack2.exe click on the dialog window "New Stack" then click on the right side of the "Path" (the button with the ... points ) and browse to the MSOffice folder

click on "Create Stack" then click on "Create shortcut" in the end save the shortcut to the stack wherever you want (I suggest in the same StandaloneStack2 folder)

now you can drag the shortcut and drop it on your opened dock !

... let me know !
