    OS X Lion 10.7 and Widget / Dashboard Effects

    Prior to OS X Lion when you went to dashboard and clicked on a widget that you wanted to add to the dashboard, you would get a ripple effect. Now when I click on a widget to add it, It just adds it without any effects, what happened to the effects ?

    If you go to System Preferences » Mission Control and then uncheck Show Dashboard as a space, you will get the ripple effect back.

    Steve has disabled it in Lion...

    In Lion, Dashboard has now been incorporated into Mission Control. The most striking consequence of this is that it is no longer a semi-transparent overlay that fades in over your desktop. Instead, it is now its own Space - the far left one. You can still access it by pressing the Dashboard key on your keyboard or by clicking it in your Dock, but now you can also get to it using the horizontal swipe gesture you use to slide between Spaces.

    This means that Dashboard now slides in from the left of the screen when activated, and as there is nothing behind it, it has an opaque patterned background. As a result, Apple has decided to disable the fancy ripple effect that used to be shown when adding new widgets.
    This makes sense because Dashboard (by default) is in it's own space instead of floating above your desktop.
