Hi Guys

A gentlemen sent me a link to this website which teaches you how to add spaces to your dock.

However it is not working for me !! Here is a screenshot of what I get when I type this command in the Terminal:

Code:
defaults write com.apple.dock persistent-apps -array-add '{tile-data={}; tile-type=“spacer-tile”;}’
Screenshot:



Note: No matter what I type after that, it just echos it out and does nothing. I know I'm suppose to do the {killall Dock} command but like I said that does nothing either.

I would greatly appreciate any help.

Thank You.

I personally stay away from the command line stuff, but for ease of use Docker for OSX will add spaces nice and easy for you..... I use this to change docks, spaces and the little indicator thingy lol

Hope it helps some

Cheers

I don't like adding extra software just for adding a space to the dock

That's my guess too.

Though I am not sure since I am a Mac n00b.

Thanks
