Creating Spacers in the Dock

If you have a lot of application in your dock and want them seperated from each other there is a quick and easy way to do it. Open Terminal and type in:


defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-apps -array-add ‘{tile-data={}; tile-type=”spacer-tile”;}’

Do this for as many spacers as you would like. Then open Activity Monitor and and quit the dock. Once the dock restarts you will see a spacer in your dock.


You can reposition/remove these spacers just like any application in the dock. If you would like to put a spacer in the stacks use this command line:


defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-others -array-add ‘{tile-data={}; tile-type=”spacer-tile”;}

There you have it! Enjoy!
