Indicate on screen option - menu click not working

studio

#1

not able to click on notepad menu using indicate on screen option. It takes notepad click event instead of menu click.


#2

make use of anchor base which prompts while doing basic recording and choose yes.


#3

I was trying by dragging the activity and then selecting the menu using “indicate on screen” link. Anyways as you suggested I tried by recording but didn’t get any promp and still have same issue that i am not able to capture menu click, it always go notepad click.

strange i kept static selector .
I sent xaml file to my team mates to give a try its working fine in their system.
:roll_eyes:

You can try doing this
use recorder then click on format then hit F2 which gives you 3 sec of delay to choose the menu.
