"XWindows and NeXt Step Strikes Back! But *much* better."
Version: DejaMenu 1.2.2
It is the most elegant way to get to the menu in a two-monitor environment. You get instant access to the Menu from a shortcut key. while the window is active, instead of having to move the mouse the looong way back.
You get almost the same functionality by pressing ctrl-F2 which activates the menubar, although a little bit more cumbersome. Having said that, it feels very unnatural to shift focus to the other screen, to request something to happen with a window.
I haven't gotten around to test it with BBEdit yet. -But I expect it to be fully operational. I can leverage this to get better workflows, for no money at all, which is a gift.
I feel the app is somewhat premature, -but very promising. I would love to be able to control click in a window to invoke the menu, - just like in X11 -nods. Everybody has two mousebuttons nowadays any way.
Still Kudos to the Developer, since this is the best solution I have found to the problem so far, - and cheapest as well.
Please implement a mouse click and a modifier key of the user's choice as well, and you have a winner!

Version: DejaMenu 1.2.2

Incredible utility, especially for multi-screen users! I have 3 large monitors and a large LCD TV attached to my Mac Pro. Before I had DejaMenu, navigating back to the "main screen" to access the menu bar felt like traveling across the US in a slow car. Now that I have DejaMenu, accessing the menu bar with a push of my mouse button solved this problem.
I use a multi-button Logitech Revolution Mouse and programmed the scroll button to pop up DejaMenu. To be able to access the menu bar on any of the screens, in any app, is just wonderful. It's one of the top time-saving utilities I've found.
100% stable with OS X 10.6.4.
5 stars! Perfect! I can't believe this app is free!
(I have no connection to the developer.)
