    Preview.app now "slides" to the next item depending on if you hit page up/down or use the arrows.

    Is there a way to disable this? When showing a series of images or pages where elements are consistent (like a series of UI previews), this is really obnoxious.

    Lion has done some pretty retarded things, but this is one of the worst. I have 10 images as part of a UI series, and I want to show them to a coworker one after another, so it simulates using the UI. Preview was perfect for this in Snow Leopard. Now, I am supposed to resort to making a keynote or powerpoint presentation to accomplish the same thing?

    Any way to disable this? There is no preference for it, maybe there is a terminal hack? I hate lion.

    If your using a Trackpad, switch from "Two Finger" swipe to "Three Finger" swipe for backwards/forwards navigation in the Trackpad System Preferences pane. That will disable the page change animation.

    (There's probably a option for the Magic Mouse/other mice as well but I don't know what it is)

    Ah, someone who shares my sentiments!

    I'm just reviewing some lecture slides and yes, it's really annoying having to scan the whole page to find what's new.

    Among the things that annoy me about Lion.

    EDIT: ahh, the minor saving grace. No slidey animation in full screen. Now I just need to deal with the long ass transitions to/from full screen.

    There is a simple way to do that: install Snow Leopard.
