View OS X animations in not-quite-slow-motion
Authored by: brianw on Sep 06, '05 10:55:53AM

Why Apple's engineers didn't think to include a shortcut to make animations *faster* rather than slower is something that will always confuse me.

View OS X animations in not-quite-slow-motion
Authored by: Mike A on Sep 06, '05 11:53:26AM

Because that would be pretty pointless. I assume you want the animations to be faster so that things 'feel' slightly faster, or so that such animations interrupt your workflow slightly less. In which case having to constantly hold down modifier keys whilst working would probably be more awkward!

Instead, what we really want is some global setting in System Preferences that will allow you to control the overall speed of all the system's animations. For example at the moment, there is a preference one can set (I forget where it is hidden) that will adjust the speed sheets roll out of windows at. Hmm, I might file a bug report on that suggestion later.
