KeyCue 8.1

Ergonis has released KeyCue 8.1, a minor update to the keyboard shortcut utility that adds Typinator integration and addresses some of the issues from 8.0.

If you use KeyCue 8.1 alongside Ergonis’s Typinator 6.9 or newer, the two apps now work together. KeyCue can show items from Typinator sets and invoke them with a click. KeyCue 8.1 also restores the “walking line” feedback during menu scanning, ignores Keyboard Maestro and iKey macro groups whose names end with minus signs, improves readability of the “kind” pop-up in the Custom list, and supports aliases when locating the configuration file for the URL collection. Also, when a new version of KeyCue is available, the message in the Preferences window will offer information about the current version.

Bug fixes address an installation problem during an update when the previous version is in the Trash, display of incorrect modifier keys in the pop-up menu for custom shortcuts, and incorrect highlighting of custom items with “text only” key descriptions. KeyCue 8.1 also works around an incompatibility with the Reaper audio recording and editing app. (€19.99 new with a 25 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 5.4 MB, release notes, 10.6+)
