KeyCue 6.4

Send Article to a Friend

With the update to version 6.4 of KeyCue, Ergonis has added an optional menu bar icon as another way to invoke the keyboard shortcut utility. If you’ve configured separate smaller tables for menu commands, system-wide hotkeys, and macros, clicking the menu bar icon enables you to see them in one large, combined table. The update also no longer displays the shortcut table if your mouse’s scroll wheel is operated while pressing modifier keys, puts a stop to popping up the shortcut window when zooming your screen with the scroll wheel, provides a workaround for an issue with Mission Control that displayed the shortcut table in a miniature desktop, correctly highlights shortcuts that don’t require modifier keys, and works around an issue with OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion where all items in the Services menu were displayed even if they weren’t available for the current situation.
