Bought new air with m1 and realized that total spaces are not working anymore. There is only one reason I bought total spaces - remove workspaces transition delay which drives me crazy. Maybe instead of supporting total spaces, someone creates an app called “Apple animation headache cure” and puts a price on it for about 100$ because people like me value mental health much higher than money or some fancy features. I understand that it’s maybe not an easy task but it is certainly easier than the whole total spaces functionality support.
Yes we are working on a new version, but modifying the system to completely remove the space switching animation time is not a possibility on M1 (we can hide the animation, but the actual delay remains).
If we do find a way to do it there is a lot of people that would be very happy (including me)
Just wanted to mention that I fully agree with you regarding Apple’s abuse of animations. It’s a total disgrace and disrespect to the users.
The scourge of animations and other UI convulsions started mostly on Lion. While many of them can be disabled through some obscure hidden tweaks, some animations cannot be disabled. Being myself a developer, I submitted countless reports to Apple regarding this issue - with minimal effect.
Windows has a checkbox to disable animations. Android has an option to disable all animations (one of the reasons I switched to Android years ago). When will Apple wake up?
