I am trying to rearrage the icons on my Dock and have forgotten how.  I believe there is a key+click and drag option, but what key?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7), MacBook Air, IPad v1, Apple TV v2

    There's no key. Just click and drag.

    Click and hold down as you move it.  You have to do before the pop up dialog occurs.  Try again.

    There is no trick or key or don't even bother about dialogue box,

     

    Simply click on the icon that you want to move and move your finger on trackpad like you are pulling that icon out of the Dock, it'll come out and then drag it to its new location and put it back in the Dock like you are pushing it in the Dock.

     

    When you'll pull it out, you'll see side icons letting it go and when you'll push it back in, you'll see the two icons making space for it to fit in.

    I'm having the same issue. I can move the icon, but the other icons will not make room for it and the icon does not stay in the new location.
