    I used to keep it the standard, default way that it's set up when you first turn on your Mac computer. However, I just recently set it to "Automatically hide and show the Dock." Magnification is on to a certain extent. The size of the Dock itself is maximum.

    I just wondered what other people's preferences are when it comes to the Dock.

    Used to have it set on the left hand side, but it began to bug me.

    Small, left side, no hide/magnification. I prefer the left because I use desktop photos and don't like the dock covering the bottom of the photo. The right side of the screen I use for alias for a few programs.

    I have a text dock, in the standard place, no magnification or reflection, and no background.

    Forgot to tell that I have it set to hide. I can't stand wasting such a huge amount of pixels, I'm on a 13 incher after all ;)

    I keep mine as minimized as possible, left side.

    Only time I use the dock is if I'm lazy and using only one hand with the computer. Otherwise I totally use quicksilver, spaces, expose, and cmd+tab/~ to get between windows.

    Haha, one of my friends does that, I can't get used to flying through the apps so fast.

    Mine is small with half magnification, auto hide. 13" screen needs the auto hide, although I keep it that way with my 20" monitor too.

    I guess I'm used to it. I really don't find it to be that small.

    Does anyone here use anything else than the Genie effect? I use the "Suck" effect ;) (You need the Secrets prefs pane to enable it, or just play with the plists.)
