Hi Steve,

Not knowing you were on the Mac side of the fence, I
forgot to tell you about a Mac-only trick to display
PDF files in your stacks : a player object.

On MacOSX only, QuickTime supports the display of PDF
files as if they're a movie object, so you should be
able to set the fileName property of a player to point
to a PDF file, and display it in your stack.

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
