QuicKeys 5.0 Adds Speech Triggers and More -- CE Software has released QuicKeys 5.0, a major upgrade to the company's long-standing macro utility (see "QuicKeys Pushes My Buttons" in TidBITS-492 for a review of QuicKeys 4). New features in QuicKeys 5.0 include speech triggers for macros, support for Multiple Users in Mac OS 9, new day-of-the-week triggers for performing actions at specified times, pop-out toolbars that save screen real estate, a screen lock function for privacy, and tabbed toolbars. Two important limitations have also been lifted - you can now name shortcuts with 250 characters of text instead of 13, and the text tool can hold 8 times as much text as before. QuicKeys 5.0 requires Mac OS 8.5 or higher (with 8.5.1 recommended), and a PowerPC-based Macintosh with 32 MB of RAM. QuicKeys 5.0 costs $100, with upgrades from 4.0 at $40, and a free 30-day demo available. [ACE]
Adjust Multiple Column Sizes Simultaneously
Within the Finder, Column View enables you to see folder hierarchies, with each subsequent level getting its own column. Dragging on the double lines at the base of a column divider changes the preceding column's width. But Option-drag on any divider, and all the columns in the window change to the same width.
