    I want to get rid of the pop-up labels which appear when you mouse over dock icons. I've routed around in the dock plist, and found that I can achieve this for items that are permanently in my dock by just blanking their 'file-label' string in the dock plist, but was wondering if there is a way to do this for all items in the dock?

    I've tried adding every logical 'key' to the plist file, I can think of, with a false boolean value, but to no luck. I'm pretty new to OS X.

    Many thanks if anyone can help me solve this!

    I've never heard of any way to do this, but you could try downloading the Secrets preference pane. Maybe there's a hidden option in there.

    it's not exactly what you're looking for, but you can rename anything in the dock with a space.
    most of my apps are in stacks by categories. the categories are named with 1-4 spaces
