You can also make sheets dis/appear instantly instead of animated...
In terminal, enter:
Quote:
defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSWindowResizeTime .001
0.2 is the default btw. So change this to any speed you like. To see the change take effect, relaunch any program the uses sheets, such as textedit for the Save As sheet.
