File types

Work­flow files are cre­ated and run in Au­toma­tor, while Ap­pli­ca­tions can be used with­out open­ing it.

The li­brary

Ev­ery app that can be con­trolled by Au­toma­tor is listed in this Li­brary pane.

The specifics

Af­ter choos­ing an app, the sec­ond column will show the ac­tions you can ask that app to per­form. You drag them into the pane on the right in a spe­cific or­der, such as New Mail Mes­sage and then Send Out­go­ing Mes­sages.

Record mode

For apps that do not in­clude ac­tions, you can record your key­presses us­ing the con­trols in the topright cor­ner (which adds a Watch Me Do ac­tion), and ex­port them as a work­flow or app to be ac­ti­vated at any time.
