10.5: Add a 'recent things' stack to the Dock
Authored by: ryan.axiom on Apr 25, '08 01:06:58PM

I believe it will be impossible to make this a fan. The key for the fan property is the "showas" key and you can assign a value to it (usually 1 is fan, 2 grid, 3 list and 4 is automatic), but that value has no effect on the display style for the recents stack.
You can experiment with this on your own, but the dock automatically overwrites your changes eliminating the entire showas key for the stack you are looking at after being killed and closing the text document editor that I was using.

You can view the text of the dock plist by opening yourusername/Library/Preferences/ You can use either the preference editor or your favorite notepad program. If you are using the text editor I would search for the name of a stack near the recents stack and it will help you find it.

Good luck
