    Is there any way to put folders of applications on the left side of the seperator? [​IMG]

    There is no real way to do this, sorry to say.

    The only way you can get around it (kind of) is by creating an application with Automator to open a specified folder.

    Not exactly what I'm looking for....Thinking more in the lines of using a program like Tinkertool to achieve this.

    Sorry, it's just not possible. There's nothing in the Dock PLIST file that enables it, which those apps use to change the dock.

    How about something like Overflow by Stunt Software? Would that work for you?

    Out of curiosity, why it is so important to have folders on that side of the barrier? What's wrong with having them on the side specifically for folders?

    Mostly personal preference and organization. It just bugs me to have the folders on the right side. It also makes it easier to access because its in the middle rather than way in the corner.

    There you go.

    I always personally liked the current setup because it keeps the apps and folders separate. To me it makes more sense organizationally. I figure an extra few hundred pixels isn't that far to go ;)
