Bug Description

I have a huge weird gap in my dock for some reason now. I can't drag and drop or re-arrange the icons anymore on both of my ubuntu computers. The screen is already pretty small on this one, and I need the extra room on my dock so I don't have to scroll a million times to get to the apps I need. I know this is a petty thing to write a bug about, I just find it annoying to have a gap qhere there used to be none, and not be able to fill it. What changed? Dragging and dropping apps and arranging them used to be a breeze in 13.04.

I also find it difficult as a novice ubuntu user to change options in the unity dock and dash and scopes all together. it seems there are no options to adjust at all and I am stuck with the messed up state its in. My Home computer won't look up my files and folders at all. I hope there will be more control for the dash and dock in future updates.

Thanks in advanced

Alex
