[NPL] ACTION Menus: the successor to Now Menus

For Immediate Release

Power On Software Ships ACTION Menus

Powerful Utility Offers Virtually Unlimited Customization of Menus Makings
Macintosh Computers Faster and Easier to Use

Columbus, Ohio - October 19, 1999 -- Power On Software announced today the
release of ACTION Menus, its eagerly awaited successor to Now Menus, the
best selling menu utility of all time. The completely new utility offers a
degree of customization and configurability that elevates Macintosh power
to a new level. By enabling users to create and customize menus that can be
configured for their most frequently used files, folders, applications, and
volumes, Mac users can work the way they want to, not the way someone else
thinks is best. ACTION Menus is the latest in the ACTION Utility suite and
offers seamless integration with its award-winning siblings: ACTION Files,
ACTION GoMac, and ACTION WYSIWYG.

Features of ACTION Menus include the following:
* 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.
* 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 five folders deep 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.
* 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.
* Multi-Action Commands: Permits the creation of automated sequences for
opening, quitting, getting file information, or deleting an entire category
of items.
* Mac OS 9 compatible: Compatible with Mac OS 7.5.3 and later

John Wallace, President of Power On Software, noted, "If the reception
given ACTION Menus by our beta testers is anything like the response we get
from the Macintosh community at large, this product is a candidate for the
Macintosh Utility Hall of Fame." As one beta tester stated, "ACTION Menus
is the most useful, versatile, and robust menu customizer ever created for
the Macintosh." "I LOVE it... you couldn't pry Menus off my system with a
crowbar," wrote another tester.

ACTION Menus has a suggested retail price of $49.95 and is available for
purchase and download from Power On's e-commerce store for the introductory
price of $29.95. To order online, users should point their browser to:

Power On Software, Inc. was founded in 1993 and has established itself as a
leader in utility software with its security product, On Guard, as well as
its network utilities, LAN Commander and Screen To Screen. With the
introduction of ACTION Files, the product that The Mac Report called the
greatest third party extension of all time and received Macworld's
prestigious Eddy Award nomination for best utility of the year, Power On
successfully launched its ACTION Utilities line. To further its dominant
position in the utilities market, Power On acquired Now Utilities from
Qualcomm Incorporated. Recently, Power On has acquired Symantec's leading
security utility, Norton DiskLock and has released On Guard for Windows.
Power On is committed to providing the highest quality productivity
software, with an emphasis on system enhancements and maintenance, and a
strong customer oriented philosophy.
