Easy Automator Workflows

Most users are aware that QuarkXPress offers powerful automation possibilities that Mac OS X can tap into, but very few explore those options. The process is quite straightforward, and can be learned in baby steps.

An easy way to dip your toes into it is through the $40 Ultimate Productivity Automator Action Pack from Automated Workflows. This collection of pre-built Automator actions makes it easy to add pages to QuarkXPress documents, insert graphics and text, export pages to EPS, and more.

The collection also includes equivalent actions for InDesign, and similar actions for Photoshop, iPhoto, FileMaker, TextEdit, and the Finder.
