How to Use Keyboard Maestro to Automate ScreenFlow and Other Applications

If you want to get more done in applications that you use on a regular basis, I highly recommend that you use Keyboard Maestro to automate tasks that you regularly perform in those applications.

The following video first appeared on my YouTube Channel, but I’m adding it here with another information for my blog readers. Following the video, I pasted the macro set for ScreenFlow that I describe in the video. If you’re familiar with Keyboard Maestro you should be able to understand the setup. Note: I trigger the macro using a Keyboard Maestro Palette, instead of a hotkey.

The point of the video demo is to give you an idea of how to automate actions in applications you use. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask in the comment section below.
