[prMac.com] Hagenberg, Austria - Ergonis Software today released KeyCue 6.6, an improved version of the company's popular keyboard shortcut cheat sheet. KeyCue is a handy tool for learning and remembering keyboard shortcuts. With a simple keystroke or click, KeyCue displays a table with all available keyboard shortcuts, system-wide hotkeys, as well as key combinations for triggering macros in Keyboard Maestro, QuicKeys and iKey.
The most important thing about KeyCue 6.6 is probably that KeyCue is now ready for OS X Mavericks, which is expected to be released later this fall. The new version works around an incompatibility with Mavericks and comes with an improved assistant for granting KeyCue accessibility permissions on Apple's next operating system.
KeyCue 6.6 can now also import plain text files with command names and offers improved visual feedback during drag and drop of custom shortcuts with headers. It comes with an improved installer, which now reliably cleans up temporary files after automatic updates. Finally, KeyCue 6.6 enhances compatibility with Finale and contains a couple of other improvements and fixes.

The productivity paradox of keyboard shortcuts is that shortcuts were designed to increase productivity. However, productivity actually decreases when applications provide large numbers of shortcuts, in particular when the shortcuts are defined inconsistently across applications. KeyCue's elegantly simple solution is to display an instant overview of currently available keyboard shortcuts - application-specific menu shortcuts as well as system-wide hotkeys and user-defined shortcut descriptions. Over time, KeyCue users will automatically remember frequently used shortcuts and start working more efficiently.
KeyCue has already received many awards, including a 4.5-Mice award from MacWorld magazine.
* KeyCue requires Mac OS X 10.5.8 or newer
