The purpose of Mac Automation Tips is to provide tips and how-tos about using Mac automation programs, including Keyboard Maestro, Hazel, BetterTouchTool, TextExpander, Automator, SuperTab, Alfred, etc.

If you have a general question about Mac automation or about using specific automation programs, fill out the form on the right.

If I think your question is useful to my other readers, I will post it and my response in my Ask Mac Automator column. (Note, your question will be posted anonymously, but if you would like me to include your name and a link to your website, just indicate that in your message to me.)

Please also note that I generally do not respond to troubleshooting questions about software programs or the Mac. It’s best to raise such questions with developers and in Apple support pages. 

I also cannot answer questions related to creating custom AppleScript scripts and other programming questions. I can only help with questions about the applications written about for this site.

I look forward to your question.
