    I have a theme with one large icon in the dock that extends out over all my other icons and covers them up. What I need is for the page icons to be on top of the dock icons. Any way to do this?

    Here are two screenshots. I made the dock of my landscape theme part of the settings icon so I can change my wallpaper freely. But as you can see, it covers up the non-docked icons.

    When wiggling, however, you get an idea of how it's supposed to be.

    What you need to do is to simply make the image of the dock your dock image. Then, the icons will sit over it and you will still be able to change your wallpaper.

    Just tried that. The oversized dock image didn't display correctly.

    I have attached it for your convenience

    The dimensions are wrong. When you want your dock image to be in landscape you have to make the transparent areas surrounding the dock much larger.
    Give me a second to upload an edited version that will display correctly.

    EDIT: Woah, this is weird. I see what you mean. I misunderstood; I thought that when you said it 'didn't display correctly' that the dock was just not positioned right on the homescreen. I've never seen the image get compressed like that...

    just slam that dock onto every wallpaper you have.

    wouldn't that work?

    I created a rotated dock widget for him so he doesn't need to.

    And I change my wallpaper on pretty much a daily basis and I don't want to be photoshopping all the time.

    And thanks again SolarFlare
