Product Announcement – Ergonis Software of Perg, Austria has released KeyCue 8.3, a new version of the company’s highly acclaimed keyboard shortcut cheat sheet. KeyCue 8 offers a new way to define a wide variety of triggers, which can be used to perform different actions, taking KeyCue to a whole new level. Based on this technique, recent versions of KeyCue introduced integration with Ergonis’ other productivity boosters, PopChar X and Typinator. PopChar customers can use KeyCue to show and insert recently used and favorite characters; Typinator users can show and insert snippets with KeyCue’s head-up display.
KeyCue 8.3 improves PopChar X and Typinator integration, includes some stability improvements, fixes user-reported issues, and improves compatibility with FileMaker Pro 14 and 15. Visit Ergonis Software’s website to learn more about the changes in this release and to download and try the new version.
The productivity paradox of keyboard shortcuts is that shortcuts were designed to increase productivity. However, productivity actually decreases when applications provide large numbers of shortcuts, in particular when the shortcuts are defined inconsistently across applications.
KeyCue’s elegantly simple solution is to display an instant overview of currently available keyboard shortcuts – application-specific menu shortcuts as well as system-wide hotkeys and user-defined shortcut descriptions. Over time, KeyCue users will automatically remember frequently used shortcuts and start working more efficiently. KeyCue has already received many awards, including a 4.5-Mice award from MacWorld magazine.
System Requirements: KeyCue 8.3 requires Mac OS X 10.6 or newer and is fully compatible with macOS Sierra (10.12).
The upgrade to KeyCue 8.3 is free for anyone who owns a license for KeyCue 8 or purchased a license for KeyCue 7 on or after March 1st 2015. Upgrade paths are available for owners of older licenses. For information about purchases, including enterprise licenses, volume discounts, and upgrade pricing offers, see the company’s web site.
