Stepping through automation sendkeys doesn't fire

is there a way to avoid this? I have three send keys, ctrl-c, down, ctrl-v for an excel spreadsheet automation. If I step through the automation it doesn’t send the keys to excel. if I run it in slow mode or run mode it works. is there a way to make it work in step mode for easier debugging?

The problem is that keys are actually sent to the window that is in foreground and has keyboard focus which in debug mode could be the UiPath Studio.

We’ll see if we can find a way to address this issue in a next release.


I figured that was the case so I was happy to see the “slow step” option. Between that and message windows I can still debug pretty well so fixing this can be a very low priority.
