    Is there a terminal command to delay the dock from hiding itself when "autohide dock" is enabled? I've got it set to appear instantly on mouseover, and I like that behavior, but I don't want it to disappear instantly when the mouse leaves the dock area. I created a quick gif, highlighting the specific part that I'm hoping to delay:

    Code:
    defaults write com.apple.dock autohide -bool true && defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-delay -float 0 && defaults write com.apple.dock autohide-time-modifier -float 0 && killall Dock
    The bigger the value (in this case 0 means no delay at all) the longer it takes to show/hide dock. Default value is 0.24 IIRC. There is no separate setting for showing and separate for hiding the dock, it works both ways.

    Dang... I was afraid they were paired together like that. Thanks for the help though!
