UI Actions is an application for macOS that lets you control any app that has menus, buttons, windows, or accepts keyboard input – via Shortcuts. If you wish your favourite app had any Shortcuts support, so you could just automate the things you do manually again and again, then UI Actions might be for you.

This site is the official documentation for UI Actions. It is a work in progress and will be updated as new features are added.

Getting Started

  1. Install the public beta from its product website.
  2. Launch the app and follow the setup instructions.
  3. Open Shortcuts on your Mac or iOS device and start creating automations.

If you run into problems

In case you have questions, either ask around on our friendly Community Forum—no matter if Shortcuts rookie or pro, you’re welcome there, we don’t bite!—or contact Carlo, the app’s indie developer, by contact form or by email.

If you have a technical issue and opt for the latter, just can also use the Feedback mail button in the app.

Visual markers throughout the documentation

Links to actions, objects, and parameters are visually marked with a colored tag. This way, you can easily spot them in the text and know what you’re looking at. For example, Get Windows is a link to an action, Menu Item is a link to an object, and File Path links to a parameter on the same docs page.
