Editors' Review

+

Research has shown that frequent use of a computer mouse may contribute to repetitive motion injuries. KeyCue for Mac claims to teach users how to replace the mouse with keyboard shortcuts, but its limited functionality and its price make it less useful than it could have been.

A 30-day free trial version of KeyCue for Mac is available, but it costs $29.99 for the full version. The program downloads quickly but despite having its own installer, proved difficult to set up. We had to try the installation several times due to the program claiming it could not install while it was open. This was a strange error since the installer was the only version of it running at the time. In addition to having to activate keyboard assist in the control panel, the program prompts the user to sign in to all network computers not only during the installation, but throughout its operation. Ergonis Software offers support by e-mail, but we didn't try this. As for the program itself, the only evidence that it was running was a small icon at the top of the Mac screen. Clicking the icon brought up a keyboard shortcut list, but any additional functions were not obvious. Instructions would have been helpful since any additional features were not apparent from cycling through the options.

While KeyCue for Mac lists keyboard shortcuts in an easy-to-see way, its full version price and failure to provide additional features make it less attractive.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of KeyCue for Mac 6.4.

What's new in version 8.4
  • Custom entries can now override existing items (for fixing items that were not correctly identified).
  • In the URL collection, KeyCue can now handle non-standard URLs with characters outside the ASCII character set.
  • Fixes a problem that resulted in an empty table when duplicate shortcuts were omitted by custom entries.
  • Fixes a problem where KeyCue failed to recognize the current keyboard on Sierra.
  • On macOS Sierra, KeyCue no longer supports command click triggers on the menu bar icon, since menu icons can be moved with command-clicks.
  • Works around a problem with missing menu shortcuts in Dorico.
  • Works around a rare crash when checking for a newer version.
  • Avoids delays caused by repeated updates of the "start at login" setting in certain situations.
