    Hi, I used to be able to drag a document (ie, Pdf document) right onto the Acrobat shortcut on the dock and it would open up for me. Now I drag the document (not only Acrobat, but Word, Excel, etc) to the program which I have on the dock and it doesn't open it. Is that in the dock preferences or finder preferences? Any Ideas??

    this is built into the OS itself, not an option you can choose

    try reparing permissions to see if that helps. but it could be another issue altogther

    repair permissions as PlaceofDis said. I had this problem and that did the trick.

    Oh yeah. I also had to remove TinkerTool also.

    It is a preference per the app whether or not docs can be dragged onto it. Try repairing permissions.
