Some exciting new enhancements to MiddleClick are available in the latest version. To accompany the default and search views of containers on the dashboard, we are introducing two new views: stacks and grids. A stack displays the contents of a container as a one-dimensional list and a grid displays the contents of a container as a two-dimensional array. In each case, the container opens and closes with a graceful and stylish animation.
A hotkey allows you to assign a global keyboard shortcut to run an app or open a container. The following hotkeys are defined by default:
- Ctrl + Space – opens home page (alternative to middle click)
- Alt + Space – opens home search (alternative to double middle click)
- Win + A – searches all of your installed applications
- Win + G – jumps straight to the Google search app
All of these hotkeys are configurable from the settings console. Moreover, a single hotkey can be assigned to multiple items. You could use this feature to open several websites with a single hotkey, for instance.
Other changes in this release include the ability to edit and copy indexer items, the addition of HTML styling to tooltips and scalability improvements.
