In most cases, when you save a workflow, Automator puts it where it needs to go automatically. But, where do your workflows actually live? If you want to remove or edit one, you'll need to know.

Text Automator Actions for Lion and Snow Leopard

To give my current and future Automator action users a brief status update...

I'm working hard to get all of my Automator actions updated and released in the Mac App Store. The first, my Text Automator Action Pack, which includes 28 actions for performing text manipulations, was released tonight. Others will follow as I have the time to get them done. Due to recent changes in Mac OS X's AppleScript architecture, each action requires a fairly significant amount of development time. So, I will keep plugging away. Stay tuned.

You can find the Text Automator Action Pack in the Mac App Store.
