i noticed in one of my robots today there is an issue when writing text that contains square brackets.
If it contains a single square bracket “[” or “]” the robot may ignore all text after that bracket
The “[” is the most common and seems to affect nearly all text
E.G if passed “hello [ uipath world”
If text is enclosed in brackets “[” “]” it may ignore that word
E.G. “hello[uipath] world” will type as “hello world”
i was somewhat able to resolve this by
escaping it using .replace("[","[[")
sending windows messages (doesnt always work)
there is also the nuclear option of removing all special charachters from your text using regex activitiy eg “[^a-zA-Z0-9 -]”
I’m wondering if there are any lists of charachters or combinations that cant be used , and if this is also a version issue.
I noticed other topics on the forums but it looks like some are now resolved
I am running v 18.4.3
