How to insert a blank space in your Mac’s Dock

If you have a dock that has a variety of apps and want to separate or even organize those apps, I have a trick for you. Here is a simple Terminal command that will insert a blank space or divider that you can move to any point in the dock. If you want to remove the space just simply drag it out of the dock to remove it. Just like you would remove any app from the dock. Just open the Terminal (Application folder>Utilities folder>Terminal) and type or copy and paste the command below.

defaults write persistent-apps -array-add ‘{“tile-type”=”spacer-tile”;}’

Then just hit Return

Then type in…

killall Dock

and hit Return again.

Now you will have a blank space to move wherever in the Dock you please. If you want more than one space just complete the steps above as many times as you want.
