    I just got a MBA and I was removing a pdf doc that was in the the Documents stack on the Dock when it went "poof" and disappeared. I was had downloaded the pdf and moving it from the desktop to the Documents stack and then decided to put it back on the desktop. Other than moving the icon for it I did not do anything. I have no idea how to get it back - any suggestions?

    Just drag "Documents" from a Finder window onto the Dock.

    What do you want back, the stack or the pdf?

    To put the stack back in your dock, open a finder window and navigate to your user's home folder (the little house icon). Then, find the "Downloads" folder and click and drag the folder back to where the stack was. Most likely the pdf is still inside.

    Click the Finder window, goto your home folder, set by default, and drag the documents folder to the right of the stack
