Dear Jeanne,

Thank you for your suggestion!

I will definitely try this out!

Two questions I posted in an earlier reply:

1) Is this stack cross-compatible? ie, will my Mac and Windows users be 
able to exchange files?

2) Is it possible to assign a specific file/document type to the 
created stack - and an associated icon?

Many thanks!
