While working people do a lot of similar actions, repeatedly clicking the same buttons; we constantly write the same sentences, filling in these or those forms.
We asked a small web-design company to record all actions they perform. On looking through these steps we were extremely surprised on how many sample repetitions people do. After analyzing these materials we drew up a conclusion that it took 40% of their time to perform the actions that could have been performed instantly. They had better have some rest during that time instead of 30 times a day getting into the wilds of submenu, using 10 clicks, and changing line thickness, color and type. Moreover, sometimes they made mistakes or were searching for this or that item. Further we were perplexed by the fact that that the designer was creating new files with sizes varying from 230x230 to 400x400 dots. Each time it was necessary to open file creation window, type in the sizes, type of color, dots per inch etc. There were plenty of such examples in every personís work. All these actions could actually be performed by clicking a button once.
Apis Ceratina is a solution of this problem, as well as of the similar ones. Any menu item, any button or sequence of actions made with a mouse or with a keyboard can be recorded as a hot key or as an Apis menu item. With Apis Ceratina you can record macro once and then, firstly, use it almost instantly, and, secondly, use it as many times as you want. Associating all your routine actions with hot keys or with Apis menu items, you will improve your productivity and get rid of computer routine.
