Hi Yves,

I remember dimly somebody had found out you cannot do this.

But you can use my own solution of the problem where you can attach
drawer stacks or substacks with any number of cards that can be accessed

. Here is my post (to the Metacard list) of August 28th:

"Reacting to a discussion we had on the Metacard list about the new
drawer command and some posts on the use-revolution list I have uploaded

a sample stack "drawers2.zip" to


The stack does *not* use the new drawer command, therefore the examples
could be implemented on any platform and also with older versions of
Metacard or Revolution.

Two approaches are illustrated

- changing the stack size - and even here achieving a real
sliding-drawer effect
- using substacks or other stacks

Modifying the examples - that use substacks - you can create any
reasonable number of drawers at any point of the four sides of the base
stack that slide out  in any direction, i.e. also diagonally.

If you wish, you could also go to another card of the drawer stack
before it is displayed ( There was a request or a question about this on

the list).

No "resize"-problems occur as they were reported for the new drawer
command on MacOS X."
