I hope this is the right place to ask this...

I want to get animations disabled for:

  • Hide/Show toolbar
  • Hide/Show tab bar
  • Activate Console : Shift + Cmd + c
  • Show Debug Area : Shift + Cmd + y
  • Show/Hide navigator: Cmd + 0
  • Show/Hide utilities : Alt + Cmd + 0

I just want to quickly do things :) Is is possible to disable or at least fasten animations for the given cases ?

It appears that someone else has put together a collection of tiny plugins for XCode that disable these animations, along with lots of "fancy" things that you might be interested in removing/disabling.

You can find the project here, with detailed information about the plugins and the installation process here.

XCFixin_DisableAnimations worked like a charm! All the things people has to do because of the sluggish Xcode :) Thanks a lot! – nacho4d Aug 29 '12 at 15:57
