I am working on a CD project that has one main stack with a series of 
cards sharing a navigation background. It will act like a book with 
chapters for each group of cards. The problem I have is that each card 
in each chapter will have links to other outside files or PDFs or 
Powerpoints or text etc. I would like to display them over the top of 
the area where the link cards are in the main stack. I think it should 
act like a MIAW but they are not movies.

I was thinking of making the outside files as separate stacks and then 
linking within the cards. There will be about 6 links on each card to 
outside content and about 35 cards in 12 chapters. The outside content 
may be as large as 100 powerpoint slides in each link.

I was looking for suggestions. The content may be rather large and 

Also, Is there a way to import Powerpoint files into REV. (Director had 
a way to do this in older versions)?
