10.5: Create new Stacks via drag and drop
Authored by: ubrgeek on Nov 27, '07 09:36:18AM

I may be wrong, but I'm fairly sure I created a folder, added aliases in it and then dragged that folder to the dock and it became a stack. I did it for the subfolders I keep in my Application folder. Granted the aliases open the sub folder in question in the finder, but that worked for me. Basically the item in the dock was an alias of a folder with aliases of subfolders in it. The key was to drag that "macro" folder alias into the dock. It automatically became a stack, with all of the stack functionality. Or am I missing something about this hint?

What you did manually—creating a new folder, putting aliases to other things in that folder, then dragging that folder to the Dock as a Stack—is what this Applescript does for you. Select any files or folders all at once, drag them onto this Applescript and a new folder with aliases will be created and added to the Dock for you. It just saves a few steps.
