Can I move the Dock using a keyboard shortcut?

If there is no default keyboard shortcut, is it possible to set this up using a program?

There's no default, but you could probably use AppleScript to accomplish this. Hmm...

EDIT:

Make an AppleScript to run this shell script:

defaults write com.apple.Dock orientation -string left;killall Dock

  • I'm in the 'extreme idiot' category with regard to AppleScript. What would such a script look like? Mar 26 '12 at 17:10
  • Yep: create an AppleScript to run shell script: defaults write com.apple.Dock orientation -string left;killall Dock ...then use the Keyboard system preferences, or your favorite launcher app such as the awesome Quicksilver, to assign a keyboard shortcut.

  • macscripter.net is a good starting point for learning AS. opening the Terminal and trying: defaults read com.apple.Dock will help you start to learn what the preferences are and how to manipulate them.
