v2.0.2 released

Summary: Accelerator Keys now supports Powerpoint.

By popular demand, you can now use Accelerator Keys to use alt key shortcuts on Mac Powerpoint. I’ve only added my most commonly used shortcuts on the Home Tab for now. But as always, if you’re a paying user, please feel free to write in with shortcuts you commonly use, and I’ll add them where possible to the next update.

In addition, I also fixed a bug that was causing Accelerator Keys to crash intermittently, and added additional shortcuts in the Page Layout and Data tabs of Excel.

Happy new year everyone!

The previous update prevented Accelerator Keys from being launched if the system language wasn’t in English. A few users mentioned that you set Excel to English while leaving the system language in another language. This update now allows Accelerator Keys to start as long as accessibility permissions have been granted.

v1.1.0 released

Summary: Updates Accelerator Keys to match recent changes to Mac Excel and adds new ribbon shortcuts requested by users.

Microsoft introduced a new section in the View Tab. Buttons that used to be visible (e.g. show gridlines) are now not unless Excel is stretched to fill the screen. Please make your Mac Excel window as wide as possible to use all available alt-shortcuts—Accelerator Keys can only target visible buttons.
