KeyCue, the keyboard shortcut cheat sheet - now in the menu bar


Hagenberg, Austria: February 19, 2013 — Ergonis Software today released KeyCue 6.4, a new version 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, system-wide hotkeys, as well as key combinations for triggering macros in Keyboard Maestro, QuicKeys and iKeys.

Starting with version 6.4, KeyCue has an icon in the menu bar, which is not only a visible indicator of KeyCue's presence, but also serves as an additional way to invoke KeyCue. This is particularly convenient when different key combinations are used to pop up separate compact tables for menu commands, system-wide hotkeys and macros. A click on the new menu icon can now summon a large combined table of all these shortcuts. And best of all, it is now possible to look up shortcuts without remembering another shortcut. KeyCue 6.4 also contains a couple of other enhancements and fixes and improves compatibility with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion.

"With KeyCue's new hands-free mode, you can now pop up the shortcut table and conveniently explore it without keeping a key pressed all the time," said Günther Blaschek, CTO of Ergonis Software. "This has been asked for by many users in the past, and we have now found a surprisingly simple solution."

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 Mountain Lion.

The upgrade to KeyCue 6.4 is free for anyone who owns a valid license for KeyCue 6. 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.

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.
