Following up on its recent upgrade to version 7.0 (see “KeyCue 7.0,” 10 October 2013), Ergonis has released KeyCue 7.1 with a couple of new features and improvements. The update adds new attributes for custom themes (such as separator lines between menus and uniform menu/submenu widths); adds a keyboard shortcut for searching; ensures the search field works with Chinese, Japanese, and Korean (CJK) input methods; and works around an issue that resulted in incorrect characters instead of key symbols.

You can make text bigger in Excel by zooming to a larger percentage with the Zoom control in the toolbar, or by selecting the cells containing too-small text, choosing Format > Cells (Command-1), and then setting options in the Font pane. You can also increase the default font size for new sheets by modifying the Size field (next to the Standard Font field) in the General pane of Excel's preferences.
