8940: slow animation

Starting with 8940 and now in 8975 the scrolling animation that happens on navigation (CtrlClick, CtrlB etc) is slow. I mean it takes more that a second.

The thing is, now it feels slow. And before it felt snappy.
I think IntelliJ shouldn't give the impression that is slow.

Is this a regression or did you did it on purpose?

Can I have the old fast animation back?
Ideally we would get the fast animation back, but if you did it on purpose I would be satisfied at least with a setting of how many miliseconds it takes for the full animation to complete.

Hello Alexander,

No, this wasn't an intentional change. We'll see what we can do to get the
smoothness back. :)

Hi, just noticed this as well 8.0 RC2 #9008. It is ugly slow. Please give us back the version 7 speed of smooth scrolling.

Hello Steve,

Hi, just noticed this as well 8.0 RC2 #9008. It is ugly slow. Please
give us back the version 7 speed of smooth scrolling.


Please file a JIRA issue with an attached performance snapshot. We've fixed
a number of problems recently (the latest fix will appear in 8.0 final release)
and we're not aware of any additional ones.

There's http://www.jetbrains.net/jira/browse/IDEADEV-32392 which has been fixed in 9001, though. At least I can confirm that the scrolling is now (almost) back to normal in the final 8.0 release.

Installed 8.0 Final #9013, the speed is back to normal in "normal cases" when window is maximized on one monitor.

I noticed the performance problem mainly because I'm this hardcore developer who has two monitors 1600x1200. When I open standard Idea compare window I normally have it maximized over both monitors (thanks to UltraMon features), so that the size of the window is 3200x1200 pixels with the window splitter is in the middle between the two monitors. I hit F7 to scroll the differences and it is slower than before. This is great for comparing two source codes, but I guess killer for performance :)

So in this extreme case I can say that it is still slower than in version 7. I don't know how to make a performance snapshot though.
