Great idea, Graham. I'm not sure what format would be best, so I'll just go with this and start listing things. As this post grows (or not) we'll perhaps learn what the best way to do this is. Maybe it's even a separate forum?
My off-the-top-of-my-head top 5 (which means I'm definitely forgetting something)
As a longtime TexExpander user can you explain the benefit of Keyboard Maestro? Has the program outgrown its name?
Yeah, for sure. It's far more than just a keystroke shortener like TextExpander. It's an automation powerhouse, triggering all kinds of actions and scripts and things. I couldn't live without it. I use it for our timestamps when we record, but it also mounts and unmount my drives automatically based on conditions (like ControlPlane used to), etc.
