Shareware utility AliasKeys 1.0 is now available, developer
Benoit Widemann announced on Thursday. This handy Mac OS X application allows users to assign keystrokes to files, folders, aliases, preference panels, servers, scripts, and more and open them without touching their mice.
AliasKeys can also group multiple items under a single hotkey, allowing for the launch of an entire workspace at the same time. And it’s Unicode-aware, so it works in conjunction with any language or keyboard, as well as such on-screen keyboards as SwitchXS and KeyStrokes.
In addition, AliasKeys supports styled text and picture clippings for quick pasting with a hotkey. And AliasMenu owners will be happy to hear that AliasKeys automatically connects to it upon installation; it will allow cross-display of information when AliasMenu 3.1 becomes available in January.
AliasKeys 1.0 is $15 and works with Mac OS X version 10.2 or higher.
