AMERICAN SYSTEMS DEBUTS EZ MACROS ULTIMATE MACRO UTILITY.

American Systems, Fort Worth, Texas, has released EZ Macros 4.0, a powerful keyboard macro program for the Windows 95/98/NT platforms, that can increase productivity and save time by making repetitive tasks quick and easy.

EZ Macros can record both keystrokes and mouse movements or macros can be created and edited manually. Common, repetitive tasks can by automated with just a few keystrokes and hundreds of possible macro hot keys are available. EZ Macros features both global and program-specific macros and gives the user the ability the ability to schedule a macro to execute anytime they want. Secure, password protected macros are also available so that only the user can use, edit, schedule, or delete such macros.

EZ Macros has variable macro playback speed, which allows a macro to playback at the speed it was recorded at, slower or faster. Multiple macro files are allowed so users can have separate macros for each member of the family or for different tasks. The new "Type-A-Macro" function lets macros be assigned to an unlimited number of alphanumeric patterns, allowing for the insertion of large bodies of text, launching of programs, and more. EZ Macros can launch your email program or send a prewritten automatic email message across the Internet.

"With EZ Macros 4.0," said American Systems president, Matt Porter, "we wanted to give people a fast and easy way to accomplish all of the repetitive tasks that are often involved with using computers. We've tried to provide the things that would be of the most help to the largest number of users and we feel we've succeeded in doing that!"

The intuitive interface makes EZ Macros the perfect tool for both new and experienced users. The new "Enter Data" function pauses a macro so the user can insert text, making it excellent for the creation of personalized form letters. Other new features in this version include the ability to import macros from another macro file, user-customizable color macro editor, the ability to run a macro at Windows startup, and macros to restart, reboot, or logoff of Windows.

In addition, a greatly expanded repeat function gives users the ability to repeat a macro a specific number of times, forever until it is stopped, or for a specified period of time. A macro progress window is available for long macros and the position of the window is user-configurable. EZ Macros also comes with "LiveUpdate" technology so end-users can always have the most current version.
