Public beta 3 of CE Software’s QuicKeys X is now available for download. Shortcuts can now be copied or dragged from one Steps drawer to another. Other improvements include better toolbar functionality, increased reliability when triggering hot keys, better handling of the Playback Palette and more.
QuicKeys lets you record and play back any action you make on your Mac. You can rename every file in a folder, enter blocks of text, reformat text, navigate to certain Web sites and more. You can do all this in a variety of ways: with a keystroke, with a desktop icon, or through a macro by speaking the name of the action.
To download the New QuicKeys X Public Beta, or for more information, go to the
product Web site. The introductory price for QuicKeys X is US$49.95. You can place an
advance order online.
