Type into Error - % sign getting added

When I do copy to clipboard and use type into " [d(ctrl)]v[u(ctrl)]" a percent sign is automatically getting included “%[d(ctrl)]v[u(ctrl)]”, leading to a "Type into Edit: special key System Exception. " How to get over this?

Thank you,

Hi @A_Learner

It seems like a bug.

Hi @A_Learner

Are you using classic or modern activities?

Regards

Using classic activities. Thank you.

was an unexpected behaviour in some package versions. We can correct it afterwards within the property panel

The properties panel does not show the %. The design panel shows % and it is throwing an exception. If I remove %, it is getting added back.

Hi @A_Learner

Instead of “type into” use “Set text” activity

Regards

Maybe using a replace / variable can be a workaround

Hi @A_Learner

Instead of Type Into use the Set Text activity because it will remove that special character while typing.

Regards

SetText is also getting the same % sign.

Hi @A_Learner

Yeah in the activity it will show the % symbol but while typing it will remove that symbol.
