Any way to change this?
Authored by: Anonymous on Mar 07, '02 10:24:31PM

Holding down the COMMAND key does prevent things moving around on the Dock. However am I the only one who finds this a pain? I drag things to ITEMS on the Dock far more than I drag things to the Dock itself.

I would like to be able to change the default behaviour to having things NOT move on the Dock, and use the COMMAND key to get them to move, thereby allowing things to be docked. (anyone dragging things to the trash alot knows how this can be annoying).

Anyone have any ideas on how to do this?

Command click on dock icon

I don't drag stuff to folders in the dock often but I believe people in general do this *much* more often than actually adding stuff to the dock. Therefore it would be better with a delay for adding stuff unless a modifier is down. To avoid the problem of moving to the trash, use the keyboard shortcut Command-Backspc.

What I really was going to write was a small tip, if you command-click on an icon in the dock it will be revealed in the finder. Might come in handy.
