Hi!



I dont know why this happens, but any way i try to minimize my dock, it always goes down to the right side of the screen, like it thinks that is the middle. Heres a picture;

    Do you have Tinker Tool installed, by any chance?

    I asked because Tinker Tool exposes a hidden option to pin the dock to a corner, which is what appears to be happening.



    Try going to users/library/preferences/com.apple.dock.plist and moving that to your desktop, then log out and back in.



    If you have a corrupted dock prefs file, that will force a new one.

    Im so sorry. I just just realized that I have dock pinning to end in secrets. I don't remember doing that, but i must have. Im sorry for wasting your time. But thanks for telling me about tinker tools to lead me to my secrets prefence pane.



    Thanks,

    Adam

    Could be, does it allow pinning? Maybe you just have a pref mis-toggled. At any rate, if its a Dock modifier, it's certainly under suspicion.
