"View content as FAN" gone for docked folders in 10.8?

    Grid, List, and Automatic are the only options now when I Ctrl-click on docked folders (e.g. the downloads folder which defaults to being docked). "Fan" is gone. Not the most pressing problem, I know - but I liked that option for folders where I usually only needed quick access to the most recently updated items. Anyone else notice this? Is there a way to get this back?

    I have the same problem.

    Can someone please help? I am sure that I could use that before on 10.8.0...

    Still there for me. I have my Dock on the bottom, though. Moved it to the side to check, and it disappears as an option. Looks like you can only have a fan if your Dock is on the bottom.

    Confirmed; looks as though you can't have content fan out if your dock is on the side of the screen. Fan functionality works perfectly fine if the dock is on the bottom of the screen.

    This function was not available in Lion either.
