#18053 closed enhancement (wontfix)

Remove the sliding effect from when hovering over icons on a collapsed menu

At the moment, when the menu is collapsed and only the icons are visible and you hover over an icon which has a sub-menu, the sub-menu slides out. When you hover out the sub-menu slides back again.


I think this is really, really annoying. Especially when you are used to the menu and want to work fast (like everyone), you have to wait for it to slide out, if it was the wrong one it slides back and you hover over the next, it slides out... and so on.

My Opinion

Please remove the sliding effect and make it appear instantly or fade in quickly. Sliding may look cool but really is not that cool to work with.

I just tried to work faster than the menu, and couldn't. The animation is quick enough to not need to wait for it to slide out. You can begin to move your mouse over and the menu will, at worst, slide out under your mouse by the time you're able to click.

I agree with nacin, I couldn't get slow enough either. I am curious what browser are you using? Could be a slowness issue related to an old/outdated browser I suppose.

Older browsers just don't have the animation.

Yep, but more so, they don't support it. (They're CSS3 transitions.)

yeah I realize that now. I originally thought (clearly wrongfully so) that it was jQuery.

Kinda hard to believe that for me. I think its very annoying but if i am the only one its to me ;O

@jkudish: No it`s not the Browser, using Firefox b6.1 :)
