With KeyCue 5.4, all Ergonis products are now ready for Lion


Hagenberg, Austria: July 26, 2011 — Ergonis Software today released KeyCue 5.4, which makes the company's popular keyboard shortcut cheat sheet compatible with OS X Lion. Ergonis' other products PopChar X, Typinator, and SharewarePublisher are already compatible with OS X Lion in their current release versions.

"We are happy to announce that with the recent release of KeyCue 5.4 all our products are now fully compatible with OS X Lion." said Christoph Reichenberger, founder and CEO of Ergonis Software. "Said that, I am also glad to mention that our products still run also on older Mac OS versions." The current versions of PopChar X, Typinator, and KeyCue run on Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger), 10.5 (Leopard), and 10.6 (Snow Leopard), and now fully support OS X Lion, whereas SharewarePublisher requires Mac OS X 10.5 or newer.

KeyCue is quite a handy tool for learning and remembering keyboard shortcuts. Whenever the command key is kept pressed for a while, KeyCue displays a table with all keyboard shortcuts available in the currently active application.

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. 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."

Availability and Ordering

KeyCue 5.4 requires Mac OS X version 10.4 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X Lion. For all Ergonis products, we recommend upgrading to the most recent release versions, since these are the only versions that have been tested and are recommended to be used on OS X Lion.

KeyCue and other Ergonis products can be purchased securely on the Ergonis Software website. Upgrades are free for anyone who has purchased in the last 2 years. If you purchase an upgrade of PopChar X, KeyCue, or Typinator now, the next major version is included for free. For information about purchases, including enterprise licenses, volume discounts, and upgrade pricing offers, see the company's web site.

Instead of purchasing KeyCue by itself, customers can get the Macility Productivity Bundle that also contains two of the company's other productivity tools, PopChar X and Typinator.
