Binary Software has released an update to KeyQuencer 2.5, the company's useful macro utility. (For a review of KeyQuencer 2.0 and more information about macro programs in general, see "KeyQuencer - QuicKeys Quencher?" in TidBITS 351, "The User Over Your Shoulder - Of Macs and Macros" in TidBITS 357, and "KeyQuencer Upgraded to 2.5" in TidBITS 415.) KeyQuencer 2.5.5 makes KeyQuencer fully compatible with Mac OS 8.5 and 8.5.1, plus fixes bugs with LaserWriter 8.5.1 and non-Roman keyboards. With neither WestCode Software's popular OneClick nor CE Software's venerable QuicKeys being completely compatible with Mac OS 8.5, this update to KeyQuencer is welcome. The free updater to take version 2.5.0 of KeyQuencer to 2.5.5 is a 676K download.
Easy Fetch Upload
If you want to upload an open file (e.g. in Photoshop or BBEdit) to a remote server via the Fetch FTP client, you can use drag-and drop without switching to the Finder. Just drag the small document icon in the window title bar to a Fetch window. If the icon won't drag, make sure the file is saved.
