There may be a solution but fences is only good if you have a lot of icons on a good sized monitor.

I'd use fences if I could have the items arrange to the right side of the boxes you create. At the moment, they all just auto-arrange to the top side of the box.

I really just want to have my icons as they are on a Mac, no special boxes, just everything on the right side.
