IMPORTANT: I downloaded Skin-a-dock while running 10.3 (Panther) and have had frustrating problems with my dock ever since. First of all, the app didn't even work. Secondly, I have since had the problem of icons frequently dissappearing in my dock after I click them. This app is not worth it!!!

This is the Coolest software for a Dock but it doesn't worth reinstalling a whole system.. I read many about it. But i tried for myself and for sure enough my Panther system crashed within 2days..

Take chance if you feel like it
But I learned my lesson

I think that it looks great, but it barely works under panther(like it works when you load an application, but you can't change it and it's inconsistent)

This application could be very cool, is it still being developed?

I have always loved this little app and wouldn't be without it. It has always worked just as it should even though it is beta, and have never caused me any problems. There are also loads of skins available to suit all tastes.

However, I am using Panther now, under which Skin-a-dock sadly does not function. Hopefully there will be an update at some point, but judging by the frequency of updates so far, I do not expect it to be anytime soon. It's a real shame. But for anyone using Jaguar, and into customisation and themeing, this tool is essential.

I have found that Skin A Dock does work under panther, but you have to apply the setting for the theme you want. Let it run for a minute, then log out and log back in. When you click on an icon in your dock, use a command-click to force quit it before it gets rolling and the skin will set in on the icon you just force quit. I have to agree with one of the other reviewers that it is highly inconsistent and it doesn't like subfolder icons. I once had some film strip icons, some fire icons and some grass...it was like a Freddie Kruger film or something. Over all, the more I mess with it and the more I try to keep the applications in the same place and then force quit them a couple of times, Skin A Dock has stayed farely well in Panther. I wish I could say the same for some of my custom icons I put into Candy Bar.

im having trouble installing it in panther but i had it in jaguar and it worked perfectly. if you have any issues you should really send them to infinety it is in beta (ie. testing) after all. its a cool program, my defult dock looks like crap compaired to my skin-a-dock skin on my old G3.
