ChronoSync Secret Menubar Shortcut

For a quick way to run a ChronoSync document without opening it, use the ChronoSync menu in the menubar. Select "Show ChronoSync menu in menubar" in ChronoSync's General Preferences window to activate the menu bar menu. Once activated, you'll see the ChronoSync circling arrows icon in the menu bar, at the top right of your screen.

You can open any scheduled ChronoSync document directly from the menu bar. If you hold down the Option key while selecting a ChronoSync document, the synchronization will run immediately without the ChronoSync document opening.

Also, Command-Tab can now be used as a hot key, the program switcher can optionally hide all other programs when switching, and the clipboard switcher now offers both a search feature and display of images and rich text. Version 4.0 requires Mac OS X 10.5 or later. ($36 new, $18 upgrade, 7.6 MB)

Looks good, but with the new upgrade to BetterTouchTool (free), I know which one I'm going for.

BetterTouchTool looks neat, but it's not really comparable to Keyboard Maestro as far as I can tell. Keyboard Maestro is a full-featured macro utility that can perform a ton of actions based on numerous different triggers.

Oh my no, you're not really comparing Keyboard Maestro to BetterTouchTool, are you?
