[prMac.com] Stornoway, United Kingdom - Elegant Chaos has announced Neu 1.2 for Mac OS X, an update to their file making utility.
Neu is a simple application that makes it easier to create new documents in the Finder, without you having to open an application first. It does this by adding menus and global keyboard shortcuts that can be triggered from the Finder (or any other application), which allow you to choose a template to copy. The templates can contain substitutions which are filled in when you make the new document.
Changes in the 1.2 release include:
* Reworked user interface
* Drag & drop support for document creation and adding templates
* Improved user guide
* Reorganised preferences
* More template substitutions
Full Product details:
Neu makes it easier to create new documents in the Finder, without you having to open an application first. It does this by adding "Create Document..." and "Create And Open Document..." menus to various places, including the main menubar, the Dock, and the Services menu that the Finder shows when you right-click on something. You can also trigger Neu from any application using a special key combination.
Neu lets you choose what to make from a list of templates, which are simply existing documents. Once you've chosen a template, Neu creates a copy of it, brings the Finder to the front, and selects the new document.
Neu comes with some pre-defined templates, but you can add your own, so you can customise the types of new document available to suit your needs. It can make a blank text document, an empty letter, a shopping list, or anything else that you want. You can have one template, or a hundred - it's up to you.
Neu also features a text substitution engine, which means that you can set up a template and have it fill in certain details (such as a the current date) at the time that a document is created from it.
* Neu requires a Macintosh running MacOS X 10.6.5 or above
* 64-bit processor
* 5.4 MB
Pricing and Availability:
Neu 1.2 is $9.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Utilities category.
