CE Software Releases New Version of QuicKeys X
QuicKeys X 1.5 offers powerful new Menu and Windows shortcuts.

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, April 8, 2002- CE Software, Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: CESW), today announced the release of QuicKeys X 1.5, an upgrade to its award winning automation utility software for Apple's Mac OS X. Version 1.5 includes controls for menu, window and click shortcuts.

"I believe that version 1.5 is a giant step towards satisfying the needs of our customers and making QuicKeys the best possible solution for improving productivity on the Macintosh," said John S. Kirk, President of CE Software, Inc.

Version 1.5 gives added control to the user by allowing them to create shortcuts for menu items and window controls. In addition, the user has much greater control over simulating mouse clicks.

"I've used QuicKeys for 15 years and know its value in daily productivity," said M.G. Roberts, QuicKeys X beta tester. "I've made my living with my Mac for a long time, and QuicKeys has been one of my most significant tools."

QuicKeys X 1.5 new features:
Quickly select any menu from your favorite applications.
Automatically collapse, close or zoom a window.
Easily simulate mouse clicks relative to a window.
Instantaneously start or stop Classic, or start your screen saver.
Now much easier to select a server.
Plus much more.
