Getting rid of MenuCalendarClock's icon in the Dock!

MenuCalendarClock is part of the ten applications bundle currently on sale at MacUpdate (learn more about the bundle or buy it here). There is one thing that I didn't like about MenuCalendarClock and it is its icon that is always in the Dock and in the Command - Tab dialog. There is no option to get rid of it easily in the Preferences either. It is however possible to easily solve this using the freeware Dock Dodger (more info or download link here). The application still works exactly like it is supposed to, but without the Dock icon.

Don't forget to check out the tip posted earlier today.

Or do it the easier way. Go into MenuCalendarClock's Preferences, click Display, click Advanced and check "Hide Dock Icon". You get a warning that this isn't recommended, but the author of the software should really make it less scary as the correct way to run the app is without the dock icon.

Thanks for the tip! I actually searched for that option before going with Dock Dodger and never found it. i didn't realize there was an "Advanced" tab. You're right, this application only makes sense without the Dock icon.

MacGeek, you couldn't find it because it's new to the latest version of MenuCalendarClock. I stopped using the program because I didn't like the Dock icon being there. I have more than enough icons in the Dock as it is, no need to have one that is accessable in the menu bar.

Now that the option is available, I have turned it off and am using it again.
