ShortStop

1.2.1
19 February 2014

Enable and disable all global shortcuts.

Overview

ShortStop is superior to those utility applications which add dozens of global keyboard shortcuts to your system. This creates a problem: global keyboard shortcuts that conflict with and override useful local keyboard shortcuts in whatever application you're currently using. The result? You're going to confuse your computer, your apps, and yourself. This results in lost time, interrupted workflow and reduced efficiency - the exact opposite of what a keyboard shortcut is supposed to accomplish.

To solve this problem, we created ShortStop. ShortStop suspends all global shortcuts with just a single click, and brings them back just as easily with another click. In addition, you can create a list of apps that will automatically trigger shortstop to save you even that one click.

Imagine being able to properly control screen sharing sessions, or use your favorite keyboard shortcut-heavy app without fear of collision! It's the perfect utility for multitaskers, support representatives, gamers, and people who frequently use screen sharing to control a remote system.

Features:
  • Block global shortcuts with just a click
  • Automatically activate shortcut blocking on a per-app basis
  • Synchronize your settings and block list using Dropbox

Very useful and working well. Gives me back usability of safari shortcuts which were masked by global shortcuts, such as CMD+'+' and CMD+SHIFT+R. Well done, makers of Divvy! (which I also recommend)

While working good, the app will prevent your Mac from sleeping. I reported this to their support more than a year ago but never got any reply (or fix, for that matter)
