    Hey there,

    I'm wondering if there's an app that will hide a specific dock icon? I want CoreDuoTemp to seem to run in the background (as well as QuiteMBP).

    Thanks,
    Evan

    I don't know of an app that does it, but if you manually modify the plist file and set the LSUIElement to 1 then restart the application it will disappear from the dock. I think the program windows will still be visible, just don't minimize them or you might not get them back.

    Google for it if my explanation doesn't make sense.

    I too would like it if you had a choice as to wether an open app would appear in the dock or not, I have Clutter always on, but I would like it to be removed from the dock..

    The above solution sounds promising, but I wish it was just an option in OS X.

    Does putting them in Sys Prefs > Accounts > Login Items with "hide" checked work?
