Workaround for non-recordable tools

Many tools and commands can't be recorded, such as painting tools, tool options, effects, view menu commands, and preferences. However, for some tools that aren't recordable, their menu equivalents can be recorded as commands in an action.

What's recordable?

Operations performed by these tools are recordable: Ellipse, Rectangle, Rounded Rectangle, Rotate, Scale, Reflect, Slice, Copy, Cut, and Paste. Fill and stroke commands are also recordable, as are opacities and blending modes.

Operations performed by these tools are not recordable: Selection, Direct-selection, Lasso, Direct-select lasso, Pen, Add-anchor-point, Delete-anchor-point, Convert-anchor-point, Type, Paintbrush, Pencil, Free Transform, Blend, Graph, Mesh, Gradient, Eyedropper, Scissors, Hand, Zoom, all the Warp tools, as well as the commands on the Effects menu.
