ACTION Menus Update

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

SOMETHING NEW ON THE ACTION MENUS

Power On Software Releases Update to
Premiere Menu Customization Product

Columbus, Ohio - October 11, 2000 - Power On Software announced today that
it had released an update to ACTION Menus, the best-selling Macintosh menu
configuration utility. ACTION Menus affords complete control over menu
customization by providing a flexible array of options that allow users to
be more productive. Also available as part of the Eddy-Award nominated
ACTION Utilities collection that includes ACTION Files, ACTION WYSIWYG
and ACTION GoMac, ACTION Menus enables users to create, customize and
configure menus so that a user's most frequently used files, folders,
applications, and volumes are instantly available.

The update, version 1.0.1, incorporates several improvements aimed at
enhancing operation with Mac OS 9 and G4 Macintoshes. The ability to assign
keyboard commands to virtually any application's menus has been improved so
that items designated as "favorites" are included in the functionality.
Also improved is compatibility with the Multifunction menu Items and the
ability to display documents in the recent Items menus.

Bob Levitus, noted Macintosh expert and author of Mac OS 9 for Dummies has
observed, "ACTION Menus is the greatest menu enhancement that money can
buy." Macintosh efficiency expert and MacCentral columnist Deborah
Shadovitz agrees, noting that, "ACTION Menus is part of my must-have Mac
utilities."

Features of ACTION Menus include:

* Addition of custom menus that include a Recent Applications Menu, a
Windows Menu, a Documents Menu, a Server Menu, a Volume Menu, and a Recent
Documents and Folders Menu. Enhanced functionality is also provided to the
Apple Menu and the Applications Menu

* Full Drag and Drop Support: Drag files and folders into menus and
eliminate the need to tediously dig through piles of folders buried deep on
a drive. Also open files by dragging to the application in the menu

* Recent Applications Menu: Keeps track of the most recently used
applications. Provides the ability to permanently add any application to
the menu with a single keystroke

* Enhanced Apple Menu: Provides drag and drop functionality in the Apple
menu so that items can be dragged from anywhere and dropped onto the Apple
menu

* Open Windows Menu: Keeps track of all open windows in an application

* Recent Documents and Folders Menu: Application specific menus provide
immediate access to current application's most recently used files and
folders. These menus are instantly updated every time the user switches
into or out of the application

* Server Menu: Provides multi-level access to recently mounted servers

* Mounted Volume Menu: Provides five-folder deep access to recent volumes

* Applications menu: Adds hierarchical menus listing all open windows in
every running application

* Finder Commands added to the Applications menu and offer option to Show
Finder Only and Quit All

* Custom Menus: Users can add up to four custom Application menus and four
custom System menus

* Customizable Smart Items and Separators: Automate the order in which the
menus display information and add user definable category separators for
faster access to specific types of information

* User-definable keyboard commands: Assign keystrokes to instantly access
favorite items or permanently remove an item or group of items. Even
replace an application's keyboard commands with ones you prefer

* Multi-Action Commands: Permits the user to perform menu commands on
multiple items simultaneously. Open, Close or Get information on several
files folders or documents without having to repeatedly go back to menus

The new version, available immediately, has a suggested retail price of
$39.95 and is available from leading retailers including CompUSA. A
downloadable version is available from Power On Software for $29.95 and the
update is free to all owners of prior versions of ACTION Menus or the
ACTION Utilities bundle
