    Hi all, I'm a new user so this may or may not be OnyX's fault. All I know is that everything was working fine before.

    The problem itself is not a big deal, but since I installed OnyX last night, I haven't been able to drag and drop new files into the dock. When i drag a file into the dock, the other icons don't move aside to create a space for them like they used to. In addition, when I delete items from the dock by dragging them into the trash, this cartooney little "poof" animation appears where I don't believe there was one before.

    Anyway, I've decided I liked my dock the way it was. Is there a way I can undo the changes done by OnyX? (another thing I'd like to see on the Mac -- and uninstall programs control panel a la windows). Or if it's not even OnyX's fault, can any of you Mac OS X veterans give me a heads-up as to what's wrong?

    Thanks a lot for your help in advance!

    Not sure what Onyx is but you don't need to drag dock items to the trash, just drag them away from the dock. The poof is meant to be there and it is an option in the dock control panel.

    You can uninstall pretty much any app by dragging it to the trash; you don't need it in the control panel.
