I figured out how to remove the useless dock icons from Launcher Pro, it's a little bit of a workaround, but it works...and I love me some LauncherPro

1. Make a backup of a launcher pro home screen from another android device, without any dock icons or with the ones you want.

2. Copy the "/sdcard/launcherpro_backup" directory from your other device onto your Nook Color (into the same place on the SD card), and restore launcher pro from the backup. (I used Astro to do all the dirty work)

Here is a zipped backup of my blank launcher pro setup (no dock icons, no widgets, no nothing):

(I can't make links yet, so just copy/paste the URL...)

did this, but now when I go to re-add my shortcuts to the homescreen, only the icons get added, not the text under them...

Isn't there an option in preferences to hide icon names? Could it be checked?

Yes, the checkbox is at Preferences > Appearance Settings > Hide Icon Labels.

Not a genius...just stuck in my ways. Launcher Pro has always been the fastest one out there!

Thanks, though!

Yep...sorry about that. I am kind of a minimalist, so hiding the home screen labels is my default. Thanks for pointing out where it was in the settings.
