This very brief tutorial will show you how to enable a useful feature in Grid view of Dock item stacks. Why it’s disabled by default is beyond me, as it’s actually quite useful.
- As you can see from the image below, item/folder names are truncated in Grid view, making it (sometimes) difficult to determine which file/folder is which.
- Start by opening a terminal and pasting in the following line:
defaults write com.apple.dock mouse-over-hlite-stack -boolean YES
and then enter:
- Now when you open a Grid stack, and mouse-over an item with a truncated name, the full thing will be displayed.
