It comes from the folks who have brought us tools like Moom or Name Mangler.
Menuwhere is being triggered by a customizable shortcut. When you trigger the shortcut, Menuwhere will display the current app’s menubar items at your current mouse location. With the developer’s words: “Menus under the mouse via a user-defined hot key.”
No need to reach back to the Menu Bar on your big screen. The Menu Bar comes to you. A nice idea!
The app costs $3. Monthly. Just kidding. Just a one-time $3 fee. There is a free trial.
I never would have thought about that. The one thing I disliked about Menuwhere is the fact that I need a keyboard shortcut to trigger a menu where my mousepointer is at. I just did the same. Thank you!
My bad. It is always the same issue with me: BTT is localized in German for me and if I try to translate my localization back into English, I sometimes use wording that apparently is different in the English localization.
Looking for “shortcut” should have done the trick.
Regarding “I should buy”… For 3 bucks, it was an instant buy for me. I love it when a developer is bringing a good idea into a nice little tool that is being priced exactly like that: a nice price for a nice little tool.
The only issue I had with Menuwhere was that you need a keyboard shortcut for triggering the menu. The Touch Tool route does make much more sense. BTT to the rescue!
Being a tax accountant in Europe: it can’t be done differently. The VAT is applicable in the state where the buyer is located at. And VAT rates are different all over the place. If the buyer is buying for his/her company, there is no VAT at all. Apple does it differently: they calculate their prices with a nice buffer that compensates currency fluctuations and VAT plus - well, like I said - a nice buffer. Nice for Apple that is. Right now, Apple’s prices in Germany sometimes are like $1 equals 1€ and the VAT is added after that. I prefer Fastspring’s approach (which is used by Many Tricks as a selling platform): they calculate the Euro price with a current exchange rate and add the VAT transparently after that. That’s fair.
An additional nicety is Menuwhere allows you to access not only the menu bar of the frontmost app, but also all currently running apps. This is especially useful when, for example, you have a Safari window opened on Desktop 1, but have since switched to Desktop 2 and want to open a new Safari window on Desktop 2. Without Menuwhere, you can only control-click the Safari icon on the Dock and then click New Window; now you need only to press the hot key to “pop up all app menus” and access Safari’s menu items with keyboard only.
Such a great app for 3 bucks! I set up cmd-opt-M and cmd-opt-ctrl-M as the hotkeys, then in Keyboard Maestro I assigned cmd-opt-mouse1 and cmd-opt-ctrl-mouse1. This way I can access the app whether my hand is on the mouse or the keyboard.
I spent about ½ hour with the program and could not get it to work. I am using Mojave.
I had problems with System Permissions which they allude to in their introductory remarks. I would invoke the shortcut and a window asking for Permissions would open. I would go into System Preferences where it was checked as being enabled. I would uncheck and check it again. No go.
I restarted my Mac twice. All of this to no avail. I would use the shortcut and again get asked to set the permissions.
Obviously, others have a good experience. For me, it was a somewhat painful waste of time.
