KeyCue 6.1 now with improved support for Keyboard Maestro


Hagenberg, Austria: April 10, 2012 — Ergonis Software today released KeyCue 6.1, a new release of the company's popular keyboard shortcut cheat sheet. KeyCue is 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 new version improves support for Keyboard Maestro by displaying macros with string triggers. The built-in automated check for new versions has been enhanced and allows optional inclusion of beta versions. KeyCue is now a universal 32/64-bit binary and requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or newer to make best use of current system architectures. Furthermore, in preparation for Mountain Lion's Gatekeeper, KeyCue has been signed with a Developer ID certificate. A couple of other improvements and fixes complete the list of changes.

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.

Availability and Ordering

KeyCue requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or newer and is fully compatible with OS X Lion.

The upgrade to KeyCue 6.1 is free for anyone who purchased a license of KeyCue on or after June 1st 2011. Other users of a previous KeyCue license may upgrade for EUR 9.99 (single license). 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.
