Greetings,
I am wondering whether and how can I save positions of widgets in order to simply restore them later, because It's really frustrating to rearrange widgets everytime after changing of resolution :( ...
I did not found where those preferences are stored, but maybe I am missing something ....

Thanks in advance for any information in the right direction

The position for each widget is stored as XY coordinates in

~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.dashboard.plist

I suppose you could make a different version of the .plist for each resolution you use, then swap one .plist for another when you change resolutions.

Yes, "killall Dock" in terminal forces system to reload positions, thank you very much ! :)
