I often find macOS's endlessly repeating "I want your attention" dock bounce animation irritating, so I disabled it with the command
defaults write com.apple.dock no-bouncing -bool TRUE , followed by
I'd like to have a subtler visual cue when an app needs my attention. Can the bouncing animation be replaced with a repeating toggle between the normal and translucent appearances of an icon (or any other "flashing" animation)?
The translucent dock icon appearance applies when an app is hidden. It can be enabled with
defaults write com.apple.Dock showhidden -bool TRUE.
I do not want an app to repeatedly change status from hidden to shown while the animation is playing.
