Is it possible to specify how a mouse click point is recorded or processed in Watch Me Do?

had thought it was exact pixel position recorded but it seems that in a safari browser it is relative to the page scroll...

Is there another way to simulate actions clicking in exact locations (irrespectivec of browser scrollbar)?

Specifically, I would prefer a non-third party tool solution - using Automator if possible.


Automator can ‘Run AppleScript’, and you can click at a coordinate using AppleScript:

tell application "System Events"
  click at {123,456}
end tell

How do I make the mouse click at current location using AppleScript?

  • Is there a way to convert the automator Watch Me Do clicks to the AppleScript absolute clicks?

  • Rather, how would you get the applescript click coordinates?
