On Yosemite I used totalspaces to modify this behaviour as well as having a grid layout... I understand that totalspaces no longer works without doing some system modifications.
The animation I wish to eliminate/speed up is the default space switching animation, which for me is invoked by either swiping left/right with three fingers or ctrl+ left/right.
Is it possible to kill or speed this up?
Edit: One year later, we're on Sierra now.... please send help
Edit: Two years later, I still check this thread and any solution still appreciated!
