Sources for Automator Actions

Mac OS X 10’s Automator feature includes many Actions that let you automate the processing of files, including the automated creation of QuarkXPress documents. To add new Actions, you can either write them yourself, or download them from kind-hearted developers such as:

www.apple.com/downloads/macosx/automator

www.automatorworld.com

www.automatoractions.com

www.automator.us

There are hundreds of free actions at these websites. For example:

QuarkXPress Automator Pack, at http://automatorworld.com/archives/quarkxpress-action-pack/

also here: http://www.automatedworkflows.com/software/automator_actions/quarkxpress.html

To use one, simply copy it into [username]:Library:Automator. If an Automator folder doesn’t yet exist, create it yourself.
