CE Software Announces New QuicKeys 5.0 Plug-Ins for Macintosh
Plug-in Suite adds functionality giving more control to QuicKeys for Macintosh users


WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, December 13, 2000 -- CE Software, Inc., (OTCBB Symbol: CESW) today announced the availability of four new plug-ins for the Macintosh version of QuicKeys, its industry leading automation utility. The new Plug-in Suite offers several features, which enhance the capabilities of QuicKeys 5.0. The Plug-in Suite is available immediately direct from CE Software to registered users of QuicKeys 5.0.

"The plug-ins we have provided give QuicKeys 5.0 users even more control," says John S. Kirk, President of CE Software, Inc. "The Plug-in Suite supplies added functionality and increased versatility to an already powerful product."

Plug-ins for QuicKeys 5.0 add new capabilities, including:

Check Spelling - Check spelling in any application with a single key, and create a custom dictionary for use with all applications. Utilize words added to a personal dictionary even in applications with built-in spell checking.
File Compression - Compress or expand files or folders quickly and easily with Aladdin¡s StuffIt Engine. This tool offers over a dozen useful options when compressing or expanding.
Text Dispenser - Copy and paste the content of multiple text fields without repeatedly switching between applications. Although useful in many applications, this tool is especially valuable in database applications. Users can now add multiple text items to a list called a "stack" and control whether items are to be removed from the top or bottom of the stack when pasting.
Decision Dialog - Create custom dialogs within a QuicKeys sequence by choosing text to display, button names and what actions to take. This tool allows for conditional branching based on user input.

About QuicKeys
QuicKeys is a personal productivity tool that eliminates any repetitive and cumbersome daily computing tasks. QuicKeys dramatically reduces time and effort spent on the Mac by automating routinely performed tasks on demand, in every application. With QuicKeys, users can assign a single key or button, or easily create powerful custom toolbars to perform functions - like opening a folder, typing text, choosing from menus, plus many more. QuicKeys also automates more complex routines, like a series of formatting commands performed often or compressing and sending files via E-mail. QuicKeys simply records the keystrokes and mouse-clicks involved in the task then plays the entire sequence back, quickly and accurately, whenever the user presses the hot key or clicks the toolbar button designated for that task. All this without having to learn complicated programming language.

Pricing and Availability
QuicKeys 5.0 Plug-in Suite for Macintosh is $14.95. The Plug-in Suite is available direct from CE Software at (800) 523-7638 or sales@cesoft.com and through national distributors such as Ingram Micro, mail-order catalogs such as MacConnection and MacWarehouse, software resellers nationwide and via the Internet at www.cesoft.com.
