Hi all.
New to mac-forums && new to mac/leopard!
So far I am loving my new mac but I have a question about the stacks.
I searched but couldn't find the answer I was looking for.

Is there a way to remove files from a stack (such as documents) without deleting the file from my computer/removing it from the documents folder?

For example I save files in the documents for school...ends up 50+ documents...I don't want all of them to show up in the stack... anyway to delete it from the fan/grid list? If this is not clear I can try clarifying my question.

Sorry I'm a total Mac noob and just trying to figure this beauty out!
QUOTE Thanks

In a straightforward way, no. The stacks are a direct representation of your files.

However, if you do want to create a sort of temporary list of documents, you can create a folder (anywhere), drag that folder into the dock. Now, just drag aliases of documents, pictures or whatever into that stack. However, this has to be done manually and is good for only a few files.

The way I work with the documents folder in my dock, is force it to open as Fan, with the last modified file at the bottom.
QUOTE Thanks
