    Since the latest upgrade I cannot move icons in the dock, right or left clicking with the force trackpad does nothing. Left clicking just highlights the icon and removes everything from the desk top with a message box
    " no available window" but will not allow me to move it, right clicking does the same.

    it was perfect since the last upgrade, has anyone else seem the same issues?

    regards

    so you are seeing the same issue? the only way i can see to arrange icons in the dock is the delete them and then drag them from the application folder?

    I cannot re-arrange dock icons even on my iMac.

    There's a terminal command to lock the dock contents, you can check if it's locked with this:
    Code:
    defaults read com.apple.Dock contents-immutable
    If it outputs "1" the icons are locked. You can unlock them with this:
    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.Dock contents-immutable -bool no; killall Dock
    After this the first command should output "0".

    I think I figured it. When you left click and hold you have to immediately start moving the icon, too long left click results in a right click. Also, i recalled that I have used a command to reduce the amount of time it takes to show the dock when hidden:

    defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-time-modifier -int 0

    So I thought it may be interfering, and reset it to original:

    defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-time-modifier -int 1

    Yup, that might be the problem they have.
