10.3: View Exposť animation in slow motion System
Given that I have received probably over 30 submissions on using Exposť in slow motion, I deciced to give in and run a hint on it ... I actually didn't think it was worth running on its own, given previous hints (1, 2) regarding slow motion effects, as well as an indirect mentiond of Exposť in slow motion in the Enable the floating Exposť blob hint ... but since it keeps getting submitted, here it is, officially documented:

To view Exposť effects in slow motion, simply hold down the Shift key before hitting any of its activation keys (F9, F10, F11 by default).

Also, once you've 'exposed' various windows, a shift-click on one of them will cause it to come to the foreground, as always, but this time with slow motion.

hah, my cat has been triggering this (when it walks on my keyboard) for weeks now, and I was trying to figure out what keyboard combo she was pressing that was slowing down my computer so much ^_^

Doesn't seem to work for Exposť hot corners - only the keyboard invocations.

Any way to disable the slowmotion? I would like other applications to be able to
use the Shift-F1x key combination.

I've notice several people have asked about using shift-F1x for software functions (particularly Word) but have not seen any replies. I would also like to know how to disable the slow motion feature of expose. Does any one know how to do it?

Ditto. This 'feature' is a maddening time waster. Apple, it's fine to put form over function -- as long as you let the user turn it off and get back to being functional!

System Preferences -> Keyboard and mouse -> Keyboard shortcuts (pane)
then uncheck F9, F10, etc.
in Tiger (10.4) at least
