Four new plug-ins for QuicKeys 5.0 are now shipping.

QuicKeys 5.0 assigns single-key shortcuts for creating custom toolbars, as well as for routine tasks, such as opening folders or inputting text.

New features in the plug-in suite include:

– Check Spelling, a one-key function that works in any application. It also creates a custom dictionary for use with all applications;

– File Compression, which compresses or expands files and folders using Aladdin's StuffIt engine.

– Text Dispenser, which can copy and paste multiple text-fields without switching between applications. Multiple text items can be added to a list called the "stack", and items can be removed from the top or bottom when pasting.

The suite is available to registered users of QuicKeys 5.0 for $14.95 from CE Software.
