Keyboard Maestro 4.0.2

Automation lovers will be happy to hear that Stairways Software has updated its popular macro utility Keyboard Maestro. In version 4.0.2, macros can be imported via double-clicking or drag-and-drop, Command-Shift-Tab can be used as a hot key, the Hot Key view has been tweaked, Typed String triggers can be single characters, and the Hot Key menu includes an Other option to indicate that any key may be used. The update also fixes a handful of bugs, including a crashing bug related to the Hot Key pop-up menu and another caused by recording in 64-bit mode in Mac OS X 10.5, along with an issue with Dvorak keyboards.
