Anchor based selectors are not supported

While using anchor base activity, I am facing the below warning. So I couldn’t fine-tune the selector of a get text activity in action side.

“Anchor based selectors are not supported in selector editor”

Hi @Sugumar8785

This is an expected behaviour. After the anchor is set, the selector of the activity next to it will be limited to a partial selector in relation to the anchor.


hello loginerror,

Could you please let us know, how it fix it or any alternate way for it. Also I’m getting the below error message

[UiPath.Studio.Shared.Logging.OutputLogger] [49] Double Click: Error HRESULT E_FAIL has been returned from a call to a COM component.

Thanks and Regards,
Uma Shankar Gupta

That is as expected behaviour
