    In Automator, create one workflow and click "Record" button:
    Click Finder in Dock and right-click any file and left-click "Get Info"

    Then I stop record and play. Each time when workflow reach step "Get Info", I get a error.

    Can anybody give me some suggestion, thanks in advance.

    The help document is very short, and this problem is too detail, so I can't find answer in help document.

    Does anybody has an available workflow with right-click operation? You can send it to jiapengjunATgmailDOTcom, thanks

    What are you trying to do with automator exactly? There may be another way to do it if you are running into problems recording a right-click and get info action.

    "get info" is just a example. In fact my purpose is to check "right click" works well in Automator.

    Looks like automator only remember the mouse click event , doesn't remember the move path, so it's hard to realize my request.
