10.5: One way to put Stacks to good use
Authored by: acalado on Nov 01, '07 10:20:08AM

Unfortunately, smart folders don't show up as stacks. I'm really disappointed because I had this brilliant idea to make a smart folder that displayed all applications that had no label. Then I would simply label any application I didn't want to show up in the stack. This way, I could exclude apps (like Adobe Help Viewer) without having to actively add applications to the stack. New apps I installed would automatically show up, and I could then simply give them a label if I didn't want them to show.

Alas, my dream was shattered when I added the smart folder to the dock, and it simply showed up as a folder than when clicked, would open a Finder window.

If anyone knows of a way to make a smart folder show up as a stack, please let me know!
