One tip that I obtained recently from Macosxtips.co.uk is the way you can separate icons in your OSX dock to suit your need, this works with leopard and Snow leopard. I found this to be very useful and I hope you do too.
See picture below, notice anything different?
That’s right!, icons in my dock is grouped into categories.
By doing this the dock is easier to organize and to look at.
These ” Empty spaces” , is actually a transparent icon.
Here’s the how you create one :
open Terminal and type the command below:
Then run :
This will reload your dock and you will see an Empty space on the right side of your dock.
You can drag this “empty icon” with your mouse and put it in between your icons on your dock.
To remove this simply drag the empty icon out of your dock as if you are removing an application from your dock or Right click
To create multiple spaces, simply repeat the command in Terminal above.
To turn your Dock from 3D to 2D like mine enter these in the terminal
defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean YES; killall Dock
and to turn it back to 3D
defaults write com.apple.dock no-glass -boolean NO; killall Dock
I hope you have as much fun as I do in doing this.
