Keyboard Maestro 6.3

by Agen G. N. Schmitz

Stairways Software has released Keyboard Maestro 6.3 [1] with nearly 50 small enhancements and fixes in the automation utility. The update adds a delay before and after dragging in the drag mouse action, adds a number of Typed String trigger options, promises vast improvement in the performance of actions that write named clipboard entries, allows more use of shortcut letters in switchers with non-English keyboards, utilizes a “more modern method” of hardware key simulation to resolve issues with the Volume Control action, and adds support for displaying time saved in days, months, or years. A newly discovered bug can result in Keyboard Maestro-mediated clipboard text being messed up in some applications; look for 6.3.1 to appear shortly.
