    I though when you enables spaces that an icon was supposed to appear in the dock. I enabled spaces using system preferences but no icon shows up. I can get a small symbol to show in the menu bar at the top of the screen but not in the dock. WHat am I doing wrong?

    Go to your applications folder, find spaces and drag it to the dock.

    i had the same issue. the manual/apple site made it seem like the spaces icon would already appear in the dock. I had to drag it there myself :)

    It seems you only get it on a clean install (you don't on an archive/install), you can just drag the Spaces icon from the Applications folder to the dock to make it appear.

    Spaces Icon Not on Dock

    I went to another site and found my mistake! Had to go to Applications/Utilities, and then "drag" the spaces icon from Utilities to the dock.
    It worked!.:rolleyes:

    Just make a "hot corner" for spaces and forget about the icon:cool: Super fast that way...

    I try to use the hot corner on the pc at work :rolleyes:

    . . . or use a hot key.
    You can also put a Spaces drop down menu in the Menu Bar.
