The Hot Key feature enables you to perform any number of user configurable actions simply by pressing a keystroke. Hot Key actions include quitting, hiding, or activating applications, inserting text, executing an Apple Script or a UNIX script, opening files or folders, moving and clicking the mouse, and much more. All hot keys can optionally be targeted to specific applications, allowing the hot key to be active only when you find it useful. Furthermore, any hot key can contain more than one action, enabling you to create macros for any application.
Keyboard Maestro incorporates the wildly popular Classic MacOS application switching utility, Program Switcher. In fact, Keyboard Maestro was written by the author of Program Switcher. With the Program Switcher feature, you are able to launch, switch, hide, and quit applications with a simple keystroke. Keyboard Maestro brings to MacOS X what Classic Mac users have been enjoying since 1994 - the most refined application switching utility there is!
Keyboard Maestro also has the extremely useful clipboard utility, Clipboard Switcher, built in. Clipboard Switcher allows you to define any number of clipboards which you can use to ‘copy to’ and ‘paste from’ simply by pressing a keystroke. Clipboards are automatically saved through system restart, user logout, and are always available when you need them.
You may download Keyboard Maestro and use the unregistered (Lite) version indefinitely for FREE!
