Simulate Type Into and For Each activities

Hi Everyone,

I have a process that is downloading files from the internet and I use a ‘For each’ activity for multiple downloads.

Inside the ‘For each’ activity I have a ‘Type into’ activity where I insert the download path into the ‘Save as’ window dialog and I’ve chosen to use to ‘Simulate’ the Input mode as a way to type this data faster.

The first instance of the ‘For each’ is doing the input correctly (quite instantly) but for the 2nd and the next instances characters all type one by one (200ms) just like ‘Hardware events’).

is this the expected behavior? Or is there a better way of achieving this?

Hope you can help.

I’m using StudioX 2020.4.1
