    I have 3 external monitors connected to my rMBP. I want the dock to appear on the 3 monitors when I bounce the cursor off the bottom of the screen on each....This seemed like it worked a few days ago but I can't figure out what would have caused it to stop. I did update to 10.9.2 today so maybe that's it. Any ideas?

    Verify System Preferences > Mission Control that you have "Displays have separate Spaces" enabled.

    The sensitivity of it may be a little altered under 10.9.2 also, it used to annoy me that it would do it without me really wanting to but not so much any more. I wasn't sure if the behavior altered or if I just got better at avoiding it. The trick is to move the mouse to the bottom of the window, pause, then slide the mouse down to enable the dock.
