Type Into - First Character is not typed under SimulateType

Hello there,

I am trying to automate a login to one of our internal systems. It works well if I disable Simulate Type for the username.

Here is what I did:

  • Open Browser + Attach Window without Problems
  • Input Password - with Simulate Type
  • Input a program number - with Simulate Type

But if I use Simulate Type on the username which is a letter followed by numbers (e.g. a12345) it pastes the number only, misses the first character and opens a help window instead(seems like it hits a shortcut). So the result is 12345 plus popup.

I tried Click before Typing, Delays, WaitForReady Complete Option… but nothing helps. I know that I can use SendWindowMessage but since it is way slower than SimulateType I wanna know where the Problem might be.

The Selector looks similar to the other two (password and selected program) and I dont expect this to be the problem.

try to give delay in delay between keys property. or else use set to clipboard activity

You can try Set Text activity

Hope this helps you


The solution via Clipboard + Paste works, thank you very much
