Grouping dock items...

Trying to figure out how people are organizing their icons in sections on the dock...(not with stacks, literally spacing out icons on the dock)

One way is to use the tool OnyX to add the spaces

Thanks, I actually had that before but got ride of it because I got nervous it was going to corrupt OSX But if thats the way it has to be done, its worth the risk I suppose.

You can do this without 3rd party tools.

Left side:
Code:
defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-apps -array-add '{tile-data={}; tile-type="spacer-tile";}
Right side:
Code:
defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-others -array-add '{tile-data={}; tile-type="spacer-tile";}'
Of course, follow those with a killall Dock. You can drag between sides as well, so you don't have to create left and right spacers.
