[UI] Faster reveal of secondary/hidden UI elements and menus

Recommended Posts

Some of the UI elements which are not visible either require a lengthy mouse press-and-hold to be revealed, like secondary tools, or use UI devices which use lengthy animations to reveal the element (eg, snapping options).

 

These while cute quickly become annoying when working under pressure on time critical projects.

 

It would be great if there was a way to toggle UI animations off or enable fast UI mode. In particular, right click on tools with secondary options should reveal the menu (or whatever UI device needs to be displayed) instantly.

Quick hint: You can get the secondary tools instantly by clicking the icon and moving the mouse pointer to the right while the mouse button is still pressed … no delay.  :)

Quicker: Click the triangle area in the bottom-right of the tool icon to access the alternative tool(s) or use additional icons in the tools panel / keyboard shortcuts (defined by additional apps).  :)

 

Yes, only some unprofessionals love annoying UI animations, inconsistent UIs, and half-baked tools.
