    I just updated my MBP to Yosemite and I'm loving it so far. On Mavericks I used this Terminal command to move my Dock to the corner, but after updating the Dock went back to the center. I tried the command again and it doesn't work anymore. Anyone know how to get it to work again?

    Same issue. I usually have my dock pinned on the top right of the screen and defaults write com.apple.dock pinning start doesn't work anymore.

    It's basically the same command (except that you explicitly say that start is a string). Doesn't work either :confused:

    Apparently the only thing I've been able to find on this is "this feature is gone." That's terrible if that's true. What reason could Apple possibly have for stripping this out?

    I hope this is going to either be put back in (if we all complain), or someone will find another way around it. Maybe they just changed the defaults setting string name?

    Notice that there is a "pinning = end" which is the same setting we were all seeing. Why would it be in there if it doesn't do anything? Maybe they just disabled it and can re-enable

    Here's what I'm seeing in the defaults string file. Anyone see anything that might work?

    I hope someone who understands what this long string of text means can find a solution. My Dock looks so bizarre in the middle.
