CE Software has released a public beta of QuicKeys X2, an upcoming version of its utility that automates any task, multi-step or repetitive action. “With X2 the power to record your shortcuts and play them back with a single keystroke is back. QuicKeys X2 also includes a new Clips shortcut that allows you to keep a library of text clips or images; available with a single trigger. New date and time formats, completely revised interface and powerful button and popup menu shortcuts are just a few thing coming in X2.” Pricing and expected release date for the final version were not provided.
