CE Software Releases QuicKeys X2 for Mac OS X
QuicKeys X2 has an improved interface and multi-step recording.

WEST DES MOINES, Iowa, June 16, 2003 - CE Software, Inc. (OTC Symbol: CESF), today announced the release of QuicKeys X2, an upgrade to its award winning automation utility software for Apple's Mac OS X. This new version offers a new and improved interface, the ability to record and playback shortcuts, a shortcut debugging tool, a new Clips shortcut for storing and retrieving collections of images and text, new multi-step shortcut tools, plus much more.

"This release of QuicKeys X goes beyond what the experts thought was possible with OS X. This is a major accomplishment," said John S. Kirk, President of CE Software, Inc.

"As a [classic] QuicKeys user since 2.0, and a beta tester for several of the 3.0 - 5.0 products.... X2 ROCKS! I love the shortcut debugging feature. I used to insert memos in between the steps to see when sequences would quit...this is so much better," said Brian Tombaugh, newspaper photographer.

QuicKeys X2 new features:
- Recording helps automate longer tasks for playback.
- Shortcut debugging -- a new tool for fine-tuning Multi-step Shortcuts.
- A redesigned interface for easier shortcut editing and creation.
- New Message, Wait, and Repeat shortcuts add more power to Multi-step shortcuts.
- Clips - a new shortcut which easily stores and retrieves images and text.
- New customizable Date and Time formats.
- A new Pop-Up menu shortcut selects pop-up menus by name, location or position.
- Plus many more.
