ControllerMate for OS X offers a comprehensive building block approach for simple or complex macros.

Add or remove keys, blockers, and large keys to create an intuitive layout for your workflow. Grouping keys with related functions improves efficiency and allows the user to focus on creative elements instead of searching for tools or functions in the interface.

The layouts for Sketchup and Photoshop shown here have custom printed and cut key legends.
Using MacroWorks for Windows, each application on your system can have its own set of dedicated keys. This allows the same key to trigger different macros in different programs.
For example, the Move tool shortcut in Photoshop is V but in Sketchup, it is M. Using an application specific layer, the same key will send V if Photoshop has focus and M if Sketchup has focus.
An array of special functions including F13-F24 keys, multimedia commands (Play/Pause, Volume Up or Down, Previous or Next Track, etc.), Time and Date insert, and more are selected under the Functions tab in MacroWorks.
Complex macros may be constructed and edited line by line including delays, repeats, and separate macros on press and release of an X-key.
