On Element appear problem

Hi all.

I have 2 windows that appear one after the other.
The windows are identical except for the “title”, on both I simply have to click the “Cancel” button to close them.
I use “On element appears” on the windows and after the click action the “Cancel” button.
On the first window everything works perfectly, on the second window (which appears immediately after) “On element appears” ends in timeout.

The details are below.

Can you help me?



This is the log

Could you please share your Workflow with me. Will check and update you.

You can try Parallel Activity. Sometimes I used it in order to click button in a dialog while opening an excel file
