Keyboard Maestro 8.0.4

Peter Lewis of Stairways Software has issued Keyboard Maestro 8.0.4 with improvements for the recently updated automation and clipboard utility (see “Keyboard Maestro 8 Automates Even More of Your Mac Life,” 9 October 2017). The release adds “increases” and “decreases” options to the MIDI controller change trigger, adds more clipboard flavor exclusions for Microsoft Word to avoid a longstanding bookmark link issue, ensures that the Clipboard Switcher Info button setting is remembered, fixes a bug that prevented some fields from being edited in disabled actions, and fixes the Command-K action to toggle the Action Selector. Keyboard Maestro 8 costs $36, and upgrades from previous versions are $25. Anyone who purchased after 1 March 2017 is eligible for a free upgrade. ($36 new with a 20 percent discount for TidBITS members, free update, 22.3 MB, release notes, 10.10+)
