How to Make a Macro .Mac File


If you perform a certain task or set of tasks regularly in a file, or with different files, then creating an automated tool for these tasks will save you time. A macro is an automated sequence or pattern of tasks based on an initial set of instructions. In the Mac OS X operating system, you can create "Workflow" scripts. Workflow scripts can record live macros as you work. Using Workflow is a great way to record a macro on your Mac because it relies on clicks rather than coding.

  • Click "Applications" on the Dock, then "Utilities" and "Automator."

  • Select "Workflow" and then click "Choose."

  • Click the "Record" button in the top-right corner.

  • Perform the tasks that you want to record in your macro. When you have finished, click the "Stop" button.

  • Review the "Events" in your macro. If you want to remove certain items because you recorded incorrect clicks, select the events and press "Delete" on the keyboard.

  • Click "File" and "Save As" when you are done. Enter a name for your macro and click "Save."
