KeyCue 10.1 lets you define your own menu shortcuts and supports new Emojis


Perg, Austria - June 7, 2022: Ergonis Software today announced KeyCue 10.1, a refinement of the recently released major new version 10 of their highly acclaimed productivity booster and keyboard shortcuts cheat sheet.

KeyCue has been helping Mac users to learn and use keyboard shortcuts for more than 15 years now. The new major version 10 takes KeyCue a huge step forward. KeyCue 10 can not only show existing shortcuts, but rather gives you the power of assigning your own keyboard shortcuts to menu commands on the fly with unprecedented ease of use.

With KeyCue 10, you can easily add or modify existing menu shortcuts by simply pointing at a menu command and pressing the desired key combination. That's all - there's no step three. KeyCue does the rest for you and defines your desired shortcut for the chosen menu command such that you can use the new menu shortcut instantly.

KeyCue 10 also offers full support and compatibility with Apple's newest hardware and software components, Apple Silicon processors and macOS Monterey (12.x). But KeyCue 10 supports not only Apple's latest technologies, it also offers backwards compatibility down to OS X Yosemite (10.10).

The new version 10.1 refines the recently released major version 10 by fixing a problem that the square bracket keys could not be assigned as shortcuts. It furthermore supports the new Emojis in Unicode 14.0 (requires macOS 12.3 or newer), and fixes a number of user-reported issues.

With all that, KeyCue 10.1 is a must-have upgrade for every current KeyCue user as well as a perfect start for everyone who wants to use a Mac more efficiently and make the best use of menu shortcuts. 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.

In addition to keyboards shortcuts, KeyCue can display an Emoji table (click any Emoji to quickly insert it in the current text), a Folder view table (which serves as a quick launcher for frequently used applications and documents), and a URL table (for frequently used web pages and other links). Users who have Typinator and PopChar installed can also use KeyCue to quickly access Typinator snippets as well as recent and favorite characters from PopChar.

KeyCue has already received many awards, including a 4.5-Mice award from MacWorld magazine.
