    I don't know how to really explain this but the Leopard 3D dock when in 3D mode has an annoying white bar at the bottom between the edge of the screen and the start of the glowing status indicators.

    How do I get rid of this??

    It has been like that ever since Leopard was released.

    It is the leading edge of the glass shelf the icons sit on.

    I guess I never really noticed it before. Can't you turn off the 3D dock and get the other one? I think that's your best bet.

    Me too!!!

    Maybe you can "fix" it with apps for changing the dock...

    Forget the screenshot, why post this at all? What's annoying about it? It's part of the design of the dock, who would notice it? The OP was obviously bored and should be concerned about more important things on his computer. Obviously his computer is running so well he's looking for something to complain about.

    Yeah, no kidding. I have to look hard to see something that might be what the OP is talking about.

    Haha don't hate. Sometimes you just have to show some love for your Mac by customizing the UI a bit. Hell, I am a pretty busy person, but I still find time to nerd out on MacRumors (It is currently 4:30 am on a Saturday. Yes I am that cool.)

    Anyway I can clearly see the line that the OP is talking about. Personally I don't feel one way or another about it. Never really noticed it. Now it will probably haunt me. Thanks OP ;)

    A quick google search turned up these sites (and there are probably many more):

    http://www.leoparddocks.com/index.php

    http://leoparddocks.net/

    http://yellatducks.com/leopard-custom-docks/

    So not only can you have a dock with no white line, you can make it look like it's made of fine mahogany or prison bars.

    Sorry for no screen shot, I assumed other people have had this before.

    It's definitely not the same white bar as most peoples, it almost looks like a portion of the image that was supposed to be shown was deleted and is white instead.

    I can't change the color or anything, it's stuck this white color with the white bar.
    How do i fix it?

    I still don't know what you are talking about but your dock looks exactly the same as mine. The very bottom is the edge of the dock and it is white. There is also a curved line across the dock for effect or something.

    Larger image would definitely help solve your case...

    You already got your answer earlier in the thread. It's an intended part of the look, the front edge of the glass shelf. Also CandyBar is the best way to change your Dock, there are heaps of skins around.

    Just edit your dock image files or install an app that does it for you.

    The default gray dock is ugly anyway.

    You get rid of the line by removing the file 'frontline.png" from the contents/resources folder in Dock.app ... which is located in the system/library/core services folder off the root drive.

    a) Could the screenshot have been any smaller?

    b) Looks normal to me.

    Edit - just noticed the date of the original post. Gah! Why all these ancient threads all of a sudden? C'mon people!

    Here you go. You can see it in the first picture (with frontline.png) and after deleting frontline.png:

    It's a very thin line on the bottom of the dock. It drove me crazy!

    The image is called frontline.png and is located in /System/Library/CoreServices/Dock.app/Contents/Resources/

    The Dock.app is full of goodies you can change. My Dock is a sort of half-matte shiny black counter top looking thing.

    I use the Terminal to replace the Dock resources myself. Screw Candybar. Not gonna pay that outrageous price to change my UI. I bought 2.0 and got shafted when they switched to 3.0.
