Revit AutoCaps & New Shortcuts

There is a new little program that will soon be coming to a project near you.  Basically when you run the shortcut script for your project a small program will get started along with the workshare monitor.  The program adds a sort of "autocaps" feature to Revit as well as adds a few shortcuts you can't add in the default keyboard settings.  You will know it is running when you see the little orange WHW icon (see the image below) show up in your task manager.

Basically the program acts like autocaps in Autocad.  It senses when you are in a text field or a schedule in Revit and automatically turns on caps lock.   Because you may not always want caps lock to be on in schedules, you can turn it off by right clicking the icon and de-checking "Caps In Schedule".  The program adds a few other features such as a shortcut for saveas.  Click on "Help" in the same menu for more information.

I'm looking for beta testers if anyone is interested and doesn't mind a few glitches.  If this is you, lync me or shoot me an email.  Things are pretty solid right now, but you never know.
