I never said anyone was an idiot. I was groaning that someone was confusing the issue by joking about double Shift keys whilst the Apple key problem had come up.
"Always open folders in a new window" is such a colossally moot point, though. Of course it needs to be on, otherwise there is no new window to scale, is there.
Unfortunately I assumed people were trying it on the Desktop, which always makes a new window. Had I thought people were using a Finder window it might have occured to me that new windows were not spawning (and hence no animation) but I didn't catch any hints of that in their posts (I was giving people enough credit that they knew they needed to have "Always open folders in a new window" turned on in order to see, umm
, new windows for folders opening...in slowmotion or otherwise.)
Regardless, Command/Apple isn't needed to make it scale slowly, it's needed to make it open in a new window at all
No matter what, Shift is
the only key needed to make it scale slower...
Definitive? I don't presume. Just my observation.
