    I would like a folder in my dock of some of my most-opened documents.

    I can make a smart folder (with the rule 'documents opened in the last week') but, when it's in the dock, it does not open as a stack.

    I could choose my most-opened documents and put them in a standard folder but then my most-opened Word docs (for example) would not then be with all my other Word docs in the Word Documents folder.

    What I want seems very simple - a smart folder that opens as a stack - but I can't do it!! Any suggestions?

    You can do this with a Dragthing dock, I haven't found out how to do it otherwise. Even better, if you have a folder full of saved searches, you can put the folder in a Dragthing dock, right click it, and browse the smart folders and their associated files
