For years I've been using two high-resolution 24" monitors side by side. I usually prefer doing my work on the right-hand monitor and having reference material on the left side.
The right hand monitor doesn't have a menubar, which makes things even worse.
Since day one I've always dreaded needed to go into a menu, as it meant I had to STOP what I was doing, LOCATE the mouse cursor wherever it was hiding on the screen, MOVE IT ACROSS *TWO* SCREENS, find the MENU ITEM, click it, then RETURN THE CURSOR TO ITS OLD LOCATION AND RE-ACTIVATE the work area. Pure pain.
To alleviate this, I use keyboard shortcuts as much as possible, but there's always that time when you need to access something that you either haven't bound to a keyboard shortcut, or just don't know the shortcut, especially if you need to do some action you only use rarely.
Well, I had no idea a program like MenuPop existed, and it has completely solved the problem for me! I'm stunned! A simple keyboard press brings up the menu immediately, without having to interrupt my work! It is an INCREDIBLY good utility, allowing me to stay "in the zen" of what I am working on and quickly get to any action I need to perform. No longer do I dread going to the menus or even exploring things I hadn't seen in them before. You become a true menu warrior with this application! ;-)
It's priced fairly, and the developer is very responsive. Please, if you have multiple screens, download the demo of this program and give it a try for your own sake. I am sure you will find it to be one of your ESSENTIAL pieces of Mac software!
