I tried replying but it doesn't seem to be showing (at least not for me).

Anyone having issues should use the project home on sourceforce to submit a support ticket or leave a discussion comment not use here for various reasons.

- cDock uses the agent from EasySIMBL not the original SIMBL.

- If you haven't run cDock then it hasn't even done anything so there's no way it's related to any problems you're having.

1. cDock creates a custom dock BACKGROUND on it's own. All this changes is the background all your other changes will remain the same.

2. Using the restore dock will undo any changes made by cDock. ( but if you wanna be really safe you can always make a copy of the dock ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dock.plist )

3. Install transparent dock... wait for it... makes the dock background transparent. All the customization you can possibly do is listed in ~/Library/Application Support/cDock/settings info.rtf once you've installed a dock.

4. cDock customizes the dock background. Any other tweaks can be done with other apps. cDock has no effects on these tweaks.

Please note cDock uses SIMBL (not EasySIMBL).

That my explain the hangs I have started to experienced recently (since around the time I installed cDock, to try it out, but I never run at as I'm waiting for response from the developer to my questions below). Maybe my issues with hanging apps and mainly Finder are unrelated, but when it comes to issues I first suspect SIMBL, as I don't have much going on the system other than a few customizations I have done with the tools I mentioned in the post below.

1. Does this cDock create custom dock on it's own or does it inherit the customizations already present from using tools such as Tinkertool, Secret, iTweakX, MacUtil etc...

My customizations: spacers, new list view, mouse highlight in list, custom indicator for open items, recent apps/docks item in the dock, scroll to show content...

2. Is there a way to create backup of the settings in case I want to go back to my customized version of the dock in case I don't like the dock in cDock.

3. What's difference between "Install Transparent dock" and "Install Customizable dock". What options do I have for Customized dock (app description only lists transparent separator on./off and background option).

4. Currently I have multiple spacers in my dock. If I use custom/transparent dock using cDock, can I still add additional spacers? Do I add them using cDock or using the other tools ( Tinkertool, Secret, iTweakX, MacUtil etc... )

I spent good part of my day to customize the dock, I'm worried... if I install cDock and apply one of the settings.. do I lose some of the customizations?

What I was looking for.

I finally installed Mac OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) on my Macbook Air and my first thought re: the light dock background was What is WRONG with APple's UI team???

A web search showed I'm not alone. :-(

cDock could have been easier to use. The "transparent" and "customizable" options don't seem to work on 10.9.2 and there's no documentation.But the pre-made" options work and there's a pre-made option that matches what the dock looked like in Mountain Lion.

I'll take it!

Argh. I used TinkerTool to modify some Dock behaviors, and when it relaunched the Dock, it reverted the appearance back to standard. Now cDock has no effect, even after restoring the Dock to default (from both cDock and TinkerTool) and restarting. I want my 10.8-style 2D Dock back! Help!

Awesome app for something Apple should have as a built-in feature. Note for those expecting an instant fix, you might have to fiddle with the settings a bit, but once you get the hang of it, it is a great way to put the dock back in its place, from a design standpoint.

Transparent dock is back baby! I keep looking for transparent dock setting in ONYX/DEEPER but heard it wasn't possible.
