Hey Guys.

Not a showstopper at all, but still...
When "sharking" an element (like e.g. an edit...see my previous post...),
the cute shark takes way too long to return to it's original position.
(At least on my XP system, haven't tried on W7 yet).

Please speed that guy up...

Cheers.

Eric.

I noticed the same; however you still can take the shark again on the fly, so if you need it soon after your first "sharking" it is already in the vicinity of the mouse pointer and it is much faster to reach it again. A higher speed would make this more difficult.

So it may be by design.

A feature request (and there is an appropriate forum section for this) could be to make the speed of the shark customizable, but maybe this is already possible.

If you prod a swimming shark, it will swim faster. It's best to do this with a shark that hasn't eaten anything..

LOL...

Thanks for the reply.

I tried to prod him, but whether he has eaten anything or not, he doesn't seem to care...

Cheers.

This is the kind of reason why I like this UI

Double left clicking the shark should speed it up.

Oh well....I guess I'm too old (or too slow for that).

Or to put it the other way round the shark is too fast to hit him with a double click
*without* the chance to 'shark' any underlying interface modules...

Or maybe it's my Wacom..:

Cheers.

Same here. Please slow down the shark so I might hit it

No, seriously, love the shark.
