I try to customize OpenBox. In ObConf i see tab Dock and there's set position top left. But i don't see anything there.

So, what is that Dock?

From Openbox guide:

Unlike Fluxbox, Blackbox or Icewm, Openbox does not come with a panel. If you do want to use a panel, you’ll have to add one yourself, but, since you have a wide selection of panels to choose from, this allows you to have everything just the way you want it.
