CapSee1.2

16 March 2010

No more accidental caps lock.

Overview

CapSee is a small utility that let's you see when you bump the caps lock key. Identical to the built-in Mac OS notification bezels, like volume and screen brightness, CapSee presents a bezel whenever you enable caps lock... preventing the accidental caps lock forever!

What's new in CapSee

Version 1.2:
  • Now Supports Spaces.
  • Users may now hide the menu icon through a configuration menu.

In my eyes a totally senseless tool. Sorry for that. It is possible to disable the caps lock via the system preferences very easy... - go to the system preferences - open up the keyboard setting - click on the "Modifier Key..." - select "No Action" for the "Caps Lock Key" ...and the Caps Lock will not bother you anymore

Love it! For those who like this little application, but don't like the menubar icon: 1. Select Hide from the menubar icon 2. In the Finder go to ~/Library/Preferences/ 3. Select "com.threemagination.capssee.plist" 4. Get Info (cmd+i) 5. Check the "lock" box in the Get Info window. Now all subsequent launches of CapSee will be hidden.

Two things would make this the best caps lock indicator out of those available: * Make the menubar icon indicate the status * Make the icon more user friendly -- a diagonal slash through it when disabled, for example

Useless. It's enough that you type something or you see the light on the keyboard. This app only slows your Mac and the signal isn't centered on every Mac. Besides, if you write some text with CAPS it's very nasty to see the CapSee image on your work.

Another feature request would be to check for updates automatically. That would totally rock. ;)

Pretty nice. I didn't want to pay again for the upgrade to the latest CapsLock so I would love to use this. However, I spend to much time watching the keyboard instead of the screen while typing so CapSee would be so much more helpful if it gave an audio warning too.

Very useful app. But, one feature request. Once running, this app has a menubar icon. Is there any way to run this app in the background (like RightZoom etc) without the menubar icon? Coz I have a lot of stuff in my menubar. And don't really want another one.

Actually there is a simple way to deactivate that key. Go to System Preferences - Keyboard & Mouse - Keyboard - Special keys (I guess - I have German as system language) and set "No action" for the caps lock. Voilá!

I like this app. There are a few things to improve though. Please let the app exist over all spaces and ignore expose by default. I was using it on another space and wondered why the app was not working. :/

Simple app... does one thing and does it well. I like how the notification bezel matches the other Mac OS X bezels perfectly. Even works perfectly on my 7 year old laptop! Sure beats disabling my caps lock key!

Nice to find an alternative to Caps Warn, especially after they pulled a "bait & switch" in regards to offering free at the beginning then starting to charge for it later..

This looks promising, but it needs some refinements and additional features to be truly useful. As it is, all it does it when the caps key is pressed is flash an image on the screen for a second. After a second, it fades away and there is no longer any indication that the caps key is on. There are no prefs where a user could specify how long the image should remain on screen (including the option of "until caps key turned off"). The image appears at the bottom of the screen, just above the dock. It would be more likely to catch a user's attention if it was centred vertically. And for those of us with multiple monitors, it would be nice to have it appear on all screens. There's no need for the menubar icon, especially as the only thing it does is allow you to quit the app (it doesn't even change appearance when the caps key is pressed). An option to disable the menubar icon would be nice, and what would be even better is to make CapSee a pref pane with no menubar icon. Lastly, it would be nice to have an audio warning in addition to the visual warning.

This works very well, however the bezel is not centered horizontally on my Late '09 Macbook. Also, I would appreciate this more as a preferences pane. They simply feel safer. Also, I would suggest the ability to customize the look of the icon (e.g. green for caps on, red for caps off). Great start, however!
