Greatly increase the animation speed of sheets
Authored by: maddys_daddy on May 12, '04 02:30:50PM

Great hint. Since I missed the first one (and wouldn't have thought to look for it on my own), thanks for the rehash. And out of curiosity, I set the time to 2.5 to watch the animation, and I've gotta say, I'm really impressed with the attention to detail the GUI designers gave to something that usually happens relatively quickly. Like you said, there's alot missed when things happen at their normal speed. Like the shadow--it actually appears under, and follows, the sheet from the time it starts feeding out to the end of the animation. Very nice. But like you, I greatly appreciate being able to speed things up.
BTW, is there some type of list somewhere that lists all of these types of global variables, and what they do?

The command for all the settings is: "defaults read"
Just have a look at "man defaults".

Yes, but "defaults read" spits out an enormous amount of text, most of it in a format that most people can't understand, that a utility that presents this info in a more readable and easy to interpret format would be very nice.

We just put out a dumb little utility to do this very cool hint--check it out at http://www.ifthensoft.com/. It's called "Sheethead" and it was based entirely on this hint--MacOSXHints--the best site out there for this stuff!
