    Does anyone know how to make Automator scroll? I've recorded a task using the "record" feature, and everything I do replicates well except scrolling - When I drag the manual scroll-bar on the right hand side of a window automator replicates it by moving the cursor up and down, up and down... As if it's doing the movement, but not holding the mouse button down.

    Anyone know a way to get automator to replicate scrolling?

    Thanks! :)

    UPDATE: Scrolling by itself does work, I've found. However the problems come when I try to click on something down the bottom of the page AFTER I've scrolled. Automator seems to try and skip the scrolling step and just go straight to clicking on the thing at the bottom of the page (which of course doesn't work).
