Product Announcements – Swamp Dog, LLC of Bend, Oregon has released Kudos 1.0, their new productivity app for macOS. Kudos allows macOS users the ability to bind their current text selection with an active link to the source document without the usual ‘copy – switch application – open window – paste – type up the reference’ interruption.
After making a text selection, the user simply triggers Kudos. There are 4 different triggering methods. Kudos collects the reference and presents the combined reference and text selection for formatting review. After formatting, the combined data can be shared as text or as an attached file, saved as a new file, or attached to an existing file.
Current Features Include:
- Configure the reference with 8 available elements
- Change placement, font and font size of the reference text
- Configure the length of the active link
- Change font and font size of the source text
- Share as either text or as an attached file
- Share as text with Mail, Messages, Reminders, Notes, or any other installed text-savvy Share application (e.g. One Note)
- Share or Save as a TXT, RTF, PDF, or AIFF (spoken) file
- Use Mojave Light or Dark Mode as well as Light Mode within Dark Mode
- Activate with any of the 4 triggers: keyboard shortcut (initial Shift–7), secondary click, drag onto dock, drag onto window
- Configure the shortcut key using macOS System Preferences
