5.5.3 Release Notes
Released December 16, 2017.
Added window priority option for QuickTab. Normally pressing the hotkey and typing the first letter of a window title twice will set focus to that window. With window priority, you can configure which window you want to receive focus if you have multiple windows open that start with the same letter.
Fixed an issue where letter command modifications were not saved to the JSON file.
Fixed a blank row that would appear in Keybreeze Sync after pressing the hotkey and typing 'sync this device'.
Fixed an issue where Keybreeze Sync would try to upload the folders.json file even if it was blank.
Fixed an issue where Keybreeze Sync may not update a note if it was recently changed.
Increased the default wait time to paste a text function from 250 milliseconds to 450 milliseconds. This option is also configurable in the options.ini file by modifying the wait_time_before_inserting_text setting.
Fixed the hotkey + F1 functionality to open the help page (new installations only). For existing installations, the F1 functionality can be configured from the Options window > QuickTab.
When performing calculations with Keybreeze, copy the last result by pressing Ctrl+C without highlighting it first.
Moved the Windows startup location from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE to HKEY_CURRENT_USER. This prevents errors from appearing when loading the Options window under a non-Administrator account.
Added a new skin for Windows 10 - Flat Modern Wide.
When typing a keyword and pressing Ctrl + backspace, the correct amount of spacing is preserved.
Added error handling when pressing Ctrl + M when the autocomplete window was not visible.
Fixed an issue where the Search window was not searching files within top level folders.
Fixed an issue where the previous entry would sometimes flash or flicker when pressing the hotkey.
Fixed an issue where Keybreeze would throw an error when removing the last keyword in the list.
Speed reminders: Press a hotkey and type 10 minute reminder, 20 minute reminder, etc. to pop up a reminder in that time period. By default, it will display the text of the window title that you are currently viewing, but you can add to this or erase it before setting the reminder.
Added 'Move up and 'Move down' buttons in the Command List window to change the order of keywords.
File search has been enhanced -- search for text within files.
Added the ability to search for a string within a folder. Press the hotkey, type a few letters of a folder, type a comma, then a search string, and press Enter.
Added custom snooze times for notes. Right-click a note and click Snooze. Then enter a custom number of minutes to snooze the note.
Import and Export your keywords.
Unlimited notes, reminders, text functions, and letter commands.
Free version limitations:
3 text functions
10 letter commands
1 note or 1 reminder at a time. Pro trial version allows 3 notes or 3 reminders at a time. See more details
When you download Keybreeze, a trial version of Keybreeze Pro will be active for 60 days. Once this expires, you can continue using the free version of Keybreeze indefinitely, or you can activate Keybreeze Pro to use the Pro features.
Removed the Macro Recorder from the installer due to Windows Defender falsely flagging it as a trojan. This is a false positive, and it has been reported to Microsoft. You can still download the Macro Recorder here.
Fixed multiple bugs with the Search window, and added a menu option to configure the directories to search.
Added support for opening folders with Windows Explorer alternatives, such as Total Commander. These settings can be configured by typing Options as a keyword.
Added an application data preset keyword that lets you quickly open the application data, or %appdata%, directory.
Fixed a crashing issue and performance bottleneck when typing a keyword that matched a lot of entries. Added an INI setting, autocomplete_max_matches, to control how many entries are shown in the autocomplete window. The default is 15.
