I have a few stacks on my dock, and when I click on an icon in those stacks, they do nothing. They're all properly linked, and hovering over the icons shows the proper information about name and file path. It's really great that Nexus finally has stacks, but there seem to be some issues still.

Errr... Either you're running the free version of Nexus instead of Nexus Ultimate by mistake (the free version does not support Stacks) or you think shortcuts to folders placed on the dock automatically open up as Stacks, which is not the case.

If the latter, you need to right click on the folder shortcuts in the dock and select 'Convert to Grid Stack' from the context menu.

Considering that I paid for the license, pretty sure I'm not using the free version. And no, they're proper stacks; I click on them, and the grid stack 'window' comes up, displaying the contents of the folder that I set as a stack. I do know how to set one of these things up; I've used docks in the past that employed stacks docklets (regardless of the fact that Winstep Nexus doesn't use 'docklets, per se, it's mostly the same process). However, that doesn't change the fact that the icons within the stack aren't executing, even though they show the file path information that corresponds to the application that they are linked to.

Edit: Dunno what happened or changed, but they suddenly started working like they should. I promise you, I'd click on the icon, the stack would close, but nothing would happen. If this happens again, I'll be sure to let you know.

Well, it's obvious I also didn't understand what you meant (lol) I thought the Grid Stacks were not opening as such. :)

Anyway, glad it was only a temporary system glitch. Are you running Windows 10? Do let me know if it happens again and, in that case, if restarting the application fixes it.
