KeyCue 6.2

Send Article to a Friend

Ergonis has released KeyCue 6.2, which adds an oft-requested feature to the keyboard shortcut reminder utility. The new hands-free mode now enables you to pop open the shortcut table and keep it open for perusal without having to continue pressing a key. The release also adds two new black-and-white themes, as well as improves transparency adjustment for existing black-on-white themes. Additionally, the update provides workarounds for delays in Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint as well as an issue where no shortcuts were shown for Sibelius, fixes an issue with partly overlapping items in the Settings window, and corrects a problem where some shortcuts in iTunes were overlooked. (€19.99 new, free update, 2.2 MB, release notes)
