Type Into Box, error when typing into default box. Need to use Advanced Editor

I’m going through the UI interactions with notepad example and when I use the ‘Type Into’ activity, it won’t let me type the text into the default box that shows “Type must be quoted”. When I run it, I get the error:
“Main.xaml: Value for a required activity argument ‘Text’ was not supplied.”

However, If I click to enter the text into the ‘Advanced Editor’ then the script works fine.

Just wondering if it’s just me with this issue. I’m using parallels on a mac if that makes a difference.
