    I recently found a nice little terminal bash to really add some zing to the stacks grid interface, if you use stacks regularly, like I do. This is what it does. It may be old, but for new to mac members it's nice.

    (clicky)
    [​IMG]

    Once you open terminal (Applications>Utilities>Terminal or Spotlight search Terminal) Enter the text below;

    defaults write com.apple.dock mouse-over-hilte-stack -boolean YES

    killall Dock

    Then it will reset your dock, go to stacks and have a look :D

    thought I might share if you don't already have it.

    I don't really get it. Is highlighting the 'feature'?


    It's clear enough for me as it is, but thanks though. ;)

    So, this is what OnyX can enable right? Or something different?

    I have OnyX doing it, but was considering removing it but still love this feature.

    I'm not sure, It works fine when I go fast on mine, I guess you should just go realistically fast :D

    Wow thanks Matt!!

    By the way, what program do you use for the album art display? I can't seem to find anything free apart from Gimmesometunes and Artwork.
