With Keyboard Maestro's macro abilities and other actions such as the Click Mouse action, you can put together a hot key that completely automates almost most any repetitive process in any application.
With the Execute Apple Script action, you can execute any Apple Script simply by pressing a key. If you are dependent on scripting your Mac in order to automate your work flows, take that to the next level by using Keyboard Maestro to run your scripts with the touch of a button.
And that is just the beginning, there are many more actions you can use.
