    Is there any way to disable the curtain/rolling effect in iWork (kind of like the Genie minimize effect but for all dialogs!!! blech)... it's slow and unattractive... please tell me this isn't the new look of Leopard too :-(

    That has been the standard dialog sheet in MacOSX since OS 10.0.

    You can't disable it, but it can be sped up so that it isn't noticeable.

    Put this line of code in the terminal and hit enter. Changing the number changes the speed.
    Code:
    defaults write NSGlobalDomain NSWindowResizeTime .001

    Terminal is like that deep dark cave no one wants to go into unless absolutely needed.
    I learned that command a couple years ago actually, but I don't really use it because I like the animation.:D

    Just out of curiosity, how did you not notice this until now?
