How to use Get full text


I am trying to use Get full text function in a UI path program. Once I drag the function in the program, there is an “Indicate on screen” hyperlink. When I click on it, I get the option to chose the position that I want the text from. It is then I go to the other tab in which a website is open and I want to copy a person’s name from there. When I click on the name to select it, I get the error “Invalid UI code”. What am I doing wrong?
