Bug: I am unable to use the ‘Set Text’ activity to download files with a default name from Chrome.
Scenario: When I need to download a file from a website using Chrome, I wish to save the file in a custom location with a custom name. When the ‘Save As’ window pops up for the download, I provide a file path and a file name. Although the file path is respected, Chrome saves the file with the default filename from the website.
Steps to Reproduce:
- On Chrome → Settings → Advanced → Downloads, activate the ‘Ask where to save each file before downloading’ option:
- Execute the workflow attached.
Chrome_Download Excel.xaml (17.5 KB)
Expected behaviour - the file downloaded bears the name ‘Input_Filename.xlsx’
Actual behaviour - the downloaded file bears the name ‘challenge.xlsx’ (default name from the website)
Workaround: When I replace the ‘Set Text’ activity with ‘Type Into’ (without Simulate Type activated) this problem disappears.
