I don't know this is a bug, a feature, or something else. In Lion, when you open apps they will show their icons on the dock. Now the dock is just static. No matter how many apps you open the doc stay the same (unless you minimized window). So now if I hide the app I have no way to bring it back. If it is a feature, how can I get it back. I checked the dock preference but just couldn't find it. ---------- Forget it. I restarted and it's there. Weird.
