Still trying to figure this out myself...
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 27, '01 03:41:55PM

A few items simply Should Not Be Moved. This includes both Sherlock and System Preferences. The former because the global find function (Command-F) seems to expect it in a hard-coded location, and the latter as a matter of file priveleges.

Most other applications (Mail, Stickies, QuickTime Player) don't seem to object to being moved around, and I've shuffled these into different folders without incident (all still within the Applications folder, of course).

A couple of items (within Dock Extras, ending in ".dock") disappeared from the Dock on the next login after having moved their parent folder. I simply dragged them back to the dock from their new location, and they seem to work now, and remain in the dock on subsequent logins as expected.
