I'm afraid I'm not much of an automation guru. I've played with Automator a bit, and I tried QuickKeys briefly way back in my Classic Mac OS days, but I'm strictly a rank amateur. Not so Joe Weaks of the Macintosh Biblioblog. Joe is an expert Accordance user and an inveterate tinkerer. He's tried out various methods of automation, applied them to Accordance, and shared the results with other Accordance users.
Joe recently posted a set of automated actions for use with the QuickSilver launcher and automation utility. If you want to speed up aspects of your Accordance workflow and improve the integration of Accordance with other applications, be sure to give Joe's QuickSilver actions a try.
For more on using QuickSilver with Accordance, see this discussion on the Accordance User Forums.
I hope this is helpful to some of you. If it is, be sure to send Joe a word of thanks.
