Laying the groundwork for the upcoming release of OS X 10.9 Mavericks, Ergonis has updated KeyCue to version 6.6 with a workaround for an incompatibility that led to a crash when running Mavericks and an improved assistant for granting accessibility permissions. The keyboard shortcut utility can now import text files with command names in the Custom section, and it has improved visual feedback when dragging and dropping custom shortcuts with headers. The update also fixes an alignment problem with commands that contain control characters, does a better job at cleaning up temporary files after installing automatic updates, enhances compatibility with the Finale music notation app, and improves internal debugging for issues with macro utilities.
