If you have Speech to NewtonScript installed, just say:
"run GetRoot().ExtrasDrawer.viewEffect := 0;"
(without the quotes)

If you want the animation back, reboot or say:
"run RemoveSlot( GetRoot().ExtrasDrawer, 'viewEffect );"

The problem with Extras Drawer open time is definitely not the
animation. Compare opening and closing (or try the previous line).
It probably can be fastened by other means, though. But I think I'd
better focus on fastening ATA Support release ;)
