In Finder's list view, you can click the little triangles to the left of folder icons in order to reveal the contents of the folder. In 10.7 Lion, this reveal/expansion is accompanied by a vertical sliding animation.
My problem is (a) the animation slows me down and (b) the animation will often hiccup even on my new i7 Mac Mini with external video card (especially on folders containing many files).
I've searched high and low on the googlesphere for a solution to this, but I've only come across these terminal commands, to no effect:
defaults write com.apple.finder AnimateInfoPanes -bool false
No effect on Finder, info panes don't seem to have reveal animation anyway
defaults write com.apple.finder DisableAllAnimations -bool true
No discernible effect on Finder
defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSAutomaticWindowAnimationsEnabled -bool NO
This does disable the zoomimg new window animation in all apps, but doesn't affect my issue
Is this an issue for anyone else? Does anyone have a solution?
