CheatSheet for Mac enables users to have a virtual encyclopedia of hot keys right at their fingertips. Every program on a Mac includes anywhere from a few to dozens of these hot keys, and this app provides them in menu form so that users are not forced to remember them.
Installation of the application was quite easy. Once you open the program to run, it not only lets you know if there are changes you need to make to your settings, but also it opens a window linking right to the appropriate place in System Preferences. Many amateur users, for whom this product is especially useful, will find this step in the installation invaluable. Once CheatSheet for Mac has been installed, it worked with every program that we tested, and did so seamlessly. By merely holding down the Command key when a program is open, this application will populate a list of many of the available hot keys. You don't have to memorize them, though, as each hot key listing is actually also a link to the function. Click on what you want performed, and the application takes you right to that function. Even though it did miss just a few hot keys, almost every essential one is there.
Ultimately, CheatSheet for Mac is a great application, and would be very useful for anyone just learning their way around a Mac or anyone who has a ton of hot keys to remember.
Just downloaded and in a few minutes of playing with shortcuts in different apps I've learned 5 new shortcuts. They were there all the time, but buried. By seeing the full sheet to know what's there and to review when I 'kinda remember' it easy for me to start using the shortcuts.
The command key opens the window. If the shortcut starts with a command key you don't have to close the window to continue - just tap the other key and the window closes automatically and the shortcut is implemented.
Window size is larger than necessary. Would be nice if it resized to just the text, but not a major issue.
There are other paid apps that add additional features, but this is 98% of what I need and will find useful. Good straightforward and functional tool.
