I find the default launcher display delay to be extremely long and the scroll speed to be extremely slow. I understand why these are the defaults, but it makes me feel like I'm constantly waiting for it to do its thing. I feel like I'm wasting many minutes each day because of it. I have done everything I can come up with on my own to try to configure them, but it doesn't seem possible.
I have made sure my "Edge Trigger Delay" is set to 0, but the delay in making the launcher appear is still way too long. Is there any way to modify it? I've played with all the different animations, but the delay seems to happen before any of the animations even start. Is there no way to adjust the delay of the appearance of the launcher? I know I can move my mouse all the way up to the top-left corner to make it appear instantly, but I can't believe there isn't a way to configure the delay when using the Left method.
Second, the (lack of) speed at which the launcher scrolls through options is just painful. I haven't found any way to configure that either. I've already shrunk the icon size to 32, but I still have more icons than fit and am forced to wait for unity to scroll. These icons all fit nicely, with much room to spare, across the top. Forcing the launcher to the left, means there is much less space for launcher items. Is there a way to move it to the top or bottom? That would at least help me avoid having to wait and wait for it to scroll.
