    Dock Stack display
    Sorry, another question.

    Is it correct that the stacks ie downloads & documents shoe the image of the items in them in the dock instead of them showing folders with contents sticking out the top. Mine is replacing the folder look with whatever is actually in the folders !!..

    Yes, that's correct. Hopefully, this will be changeable in the near future.

    Yes, but if you put folders in the corresponding stacks it then still shows in the dock as it should ??

    This sure will help you get your dock stacks to behave the way they should have: http://t.ecksdee.org/post/19001860

    There's nothing to it. That guide is if you want to create your own icons instead of the ones that are provided (also to show you how they did it). Just have to download the zip file, extract it, and drop the icon you want in the stack. The icon date is already set to Jan 2020 or something so you don't have to configure. Only make sure your stack is set to show from "Date Modified". Even in your "Downloads" stack which is defaulted at "Date Added", you will have to change that to "Date Modified".

    If you want to sort by "Name", then change the name of the stack icon to "000" or something like that.

    Someone suggested putting everything you want in a dock stack in a folder (which I already have done) and then making an alias of that folder and putting that in the Dock. Apparently the alias will not turn into a stack and you can once again have folders for Apps in your Dock. I have not tried this, but will when I get home.

    If you want to change the folder, just change the icon.

    I tried the alias in the Dock thing. It works but you can't right click and get the pop up menu of icons like you could in Tiger. Still not the answer I'm looking for.

    As soon as I drag the downloaded folders to the dock they look like the hlders as they should. But when they have something in them they change appearance and take on the look of their contents rather than the contents being shown as being inside the folders.

    Did you take a look at that link I gave on top? It creates icons which reside in the folders, but since their date is way ahead, they always show in front.

    Been trying to do this without much luck. If I drop the icon in the folder, viewing from the Dock it just has a circle with a strike through it. I've also tried changing the folder icon through the "Get Info" window but that doesn't show in the Dock either. What am I doing wrong?
