Keyboard Maestro 3.1 Orchestrates Macros

Keyboard MaestroMacros can save you a lot of time performing repetitive functions on your Mac. While Automator and AppleScript provide a lot of power, some Mac users want an easier way to capture their keystrokes, mouse clicks and other actions. That's where Keyboard Maestro comes in.

This $36 gem from Stairways Software has just been updated to version 3.1, and adds a profusion of new features. While there's not enough space here to list them all, some of the highlights include:
  • A clipboard history switcher
  • An action to save a clipboard to a Named Clipboard
  • Clipboard Filters
  • Centering windows on the current screen
  • Fractional second (i.e., .75) pauses
  • Can add BBEdit Text Factories to the current clipboard
Stairways also fixed some known glitches from the 3.0 release. A 30-day free trial is available for download and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or better.
