Screen scraping using MOUSE


#1

Recently,I had to scrape a SSN from SSN element in PDF. The PDF was not recognized in UiPath.So,I had to use another tool.

In the other tool, I just clicked Mouse Down after image +MOUSE MOVE TIll + Image +Mouse UP

This highlighted the text and I passed ctrl+c to copy the text into clipboard.

Can we have a simmilar activity in UiPath.
