Another great review--no surprise there.

Marty is right when he says: "The main reason for this probably lies in the computer users and software developer’s commitment to the graphical user interface (GUI). Ease of use of graphically based programs is clear. However, keyboard shortcut commands are often more rapid but greatly under-utilized by the computing public."

I mentioned something similar when I got ActiveWords a couple of years agto. I've been typing for decades and my brain is wired that way so it made sense to me to type commands--even if my commands are longer than most would consider using. When you type 95 wpm typing even 10 characters to initiate a command isn't really an issue and the command isn't cryptic and hard to remember.

Maybe the issue will resolve itself as texters migrate to ActiveWords use.
