    I really like the snap to edge feature in sierra, but when I hide the dock on the left side of the screen, the windows don't snap all the way to the edge when I'm moving them. Rather, their set point is about 2 mm from the edge of the screen so that my desktop background is visible. Is this just something with my computer, or is this widespread?

    I think what he means is, grab a window and drag it, it will hesitate at the edge of the screen, but continue if you keep dragging past the edge.

    I just tried it. I normally keep my dock on the bottom, I can not stand it on the left. It appears to go all the way to the edge for me. If I do not "hide" the dock, it snaps to the edge of the dock.

    With the Dock hidden, I don't have the problem.

    With the Dock shown, if I drag a window so that its left edge excluding the title bar is snapped, then there's what might be a very small space. Maybe one pixel.

    Do you have any other tweaks installed that might interfere with you GUI, such as XtraFinder, TotalFinder, Pathfinder, WindowTidy, WindowMizer, Magnet, etc?
