Hi Prankur,

I tried running your xaml, but main has thrown an exception. 'Type Into ‘editable text’ : Cannot find the UI element corresponding to this selector: ’

Please also let me know how to solve timeout issue I am facing with workflow.


Timeout issue is there because UiPath is not able to find the element with the selector you have used try to update the selector using UIexplorer im sure it will run

Thanks a ton for prompt response. Does, It means I have to change the default selector saved in workflow while recording?

But I am not aware of ways to meaningfully update the selector as suggested by you using UIexplorer. It would be great if you could help me in this.

“Action Click ‘menu item Format’ : Activity timeout exceeded”…Hello all …i am getting the same problem …please help

If you are trying to click a button after a process completes, and that time is variable, then increase the time out of your click activity such that it does not error out without clicking.
You can also use, Element exists or on vanish etc to achieve this by setting a time out.
