unhide/hide key combo

Because Command-Option-D will permanently unhide the Dock, and you will have to press it again to re-hide the Dock after the drag operation. Whereas using a keyboard shortcut to focus the Dock will only unhide it until you finish the drag operation.

unhide/hide key combo
Authored by: capacity on Apr 28, '11 09:38:47PM

I find that when using your focus method, the dock doesn't automatically hide after dropping a file into a dock folder or into the right-side storage area and instead stays up until I click elsewhere (i.e., move focus elsewhere). It does, however, hide when dropping an icon on an application (because focus gets moved).

Anyway, I don't really use the dock (I use Quicksilver), but I just wanted to mention an alternative option.
