Flat out does not work. Been playing with it for a while in both OSX Leopard and Lion and does not function in either of them. Stay away. Waste of money

Its a good idea to be able to have 10 different docks but this application seems to crash a lot and a bunch of weird bugs like dock spaces deleting my configured docks after i set them. cant seem to understand how to get it to work with out messing everything up.

Hmmm...I've been using it continuously since February and haven't had any of these problems. Try contacting the developer to see what's going on.

it seems that some others have the same issue, unfortunately I cannot resolve the issue because I do not have this problem in both of my computers.

The easiest solution is to reset the application:

Trash the following folder:
/Users/Yourname/Library/Application Support/DockSpaces/
and the following file
/Users/Yourname/Library/Preferences/com.DockSpaces.PatrickChamelo.plist

and try to launch the application again.

I have been using Dock Spaces in conjunction with Hyperspaces for six months now. This is an amazingly wonderful product. Before Dock Spaces, having spaces, even hyperspaces was useless for me. Dock spaces was the missing product. Twice docks have gotten messed up, so I keep a list of which apps I keep on which dock for quick rebuilding, but since this is a freebie app done by a student I still give it 5 stars!

Ya, this program is free, so thats why I tried it first. It's kinda like a fundamental waste of time and energy.

If you want a second dock, why do you need a seperate space to use it? The dock can hide itself on command people. And if you looking for an effecient way to have multiple docks, THIS ISN'T IT.

It's simple, why make hard to navigate to your stuff by forcing memorization related to spaces. U can already make your mac remember what space to load the program, why go that extra step to actually add the work on ur part as well?

It's a free program because it is 1 star program. No matter how great or stable its features are, its over all fundamental system is COMPLETELY COUNTERPRODUCTIVE.

If your looking for a second dock on another part of your screen, then you want ADOCKX. If you want a number of docks that you can organize and switch to, than u want SWITCHDOCK. They cost money because they are worth it in value. there each 10 bucks.

Perhaps your review could include some pertinent information about the usage of the program rather than the philosophical necessity of said program. Otherwise its just a (negative) comment, isn't it?

After all in your review of SwitchDock you said "I give this 5 stars, mainly because it does exactly what it claims to, in an efficient and non-energy consuming way (talkin bout ram)"; which leads one to believe you are capable of intellectual analysis.

As for your review of A-Dock X, you stated that "I'm no critic and don't want to bite the hand that fed,..." You sure seem willing to bite off the hand that gave us Dock Spaces, even though it is free and plenty of us find it useful, including some of the folks over at Apple

Great App. It does what it says it does. However, I wish it could add some of the functionality of Spacesuit or Hyperspaces, e.g, " Customize Spaces with a different desktop picture for each Space."

Desktop Per Space does not work on my laptop (osx 6.5). The only time the desktop changes is when an application automatically triggers the Space change. If I do it manually through the top bar, the background stays the same.

This is a big disappointment for an otherwise great little program.

What do you mean? The desktop is assigned to each space not to each Dock :)

Would you prefer a "Desktop per Dock" function?

DPoncy replied on 10 Jan 2011
Maybe I'm confused. Are you saying that when I am changing docks I am not changing spaces?

My main use of this program is for the docks. I probably wouldn't be using spaces on its own. It would be nice to change backgrounds so that I know which dock I am in. It's not a make-or-break for me, but it would be nice.

I still love your little program.

Blackbit had trouble on 24 Feb 2010
I found this utility yesterday, and think it's great! There is one minor issue though:

If you use the setup utility, and specify less rows/columns than you had previously defined, those spaces are in effect removed. However: if you had any applications associated with the removed spaces, they will no longer appear. The associations are not removed. A quick manual remove of the associations in the Spaces preferences panel will fix this.

Thanks for a great utility!

I'm liking the addition of Dock-per-Space, but the implementation isn't all it could be right now.

I already used spaces, and couldn't work out how to tie the docks to the spaces. When I used the Spaces menu to make the changes I thought would be necessary, it removed my dock entirely and gave me some kind of all-encompasing dock that included apps I don't even own. Then when I changed the settings back to regain my original dock, I was still presented with this default style dock, and Spaces was entirely disabled - which also cost me all the app-to-Space customisation I'd previously performed!

The only saving grace here was that on closing the app, I was returned to my original personalised Dock, and unlike other reviewers I had no difficulties at all in deleting the application from my system.

So, this is still a great idea, but it's still very much in the development stages...

As you said is really early stage!

I know what cause you the trouble!
I realize that the configuration for spaces is in the plist file!

So since you changing dock a new spaces configuration is coming on!
I'll try to fix it soon!

Thanks for trying the app!
