|[8:00 AM] Key Swapping Utility For USB Keyboards Swapped Out For New Version
John Holder has updated the wonderfully simple utility, Key Swapper, to version 1.11. This is a minor update that offers support for more keys. However, for those frustrated by the lack of certain keys on the new Macintosh keyboards, most noticeably the forward delete key, KeySwapper allows unused keys to be set to function as any missing key. According to Mr. Holder:
Are you missing any keys on your new iMac, G3, G4, PowerBook or iBook keyboard such as the Forward Delete key, End key or the function keys F13-F15? Wishing you had these keys? Well, now you can have those keys with KeySwapper!
KeySwapper will allow you to use any key(s) you like to emulate other keys that your computer may not have (such as the Forward Delete key, the Page Up key, the End key, function keys F13-F15, etc.)
This program performs functions that will benefit any Mac user and is extremely simple to set up and use. You can now define all those useless function keys on your extended keyboard (or any other keys) to perform extremely useful tasks!
New Features in 1.11
- Added support for standard delete key and the arrow keys.
KeySwapper is available as shareware for only US$5. You can find more information at the John Holder Software web site.
