    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)

    Thanks, I actually had that before but got ride of it because I got nervous it was going to corrupt OSX:eek: 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.
