Scenario: Updated UiPath.PDF.Activities package to the latest stable release which is 188.8.131.52. This required a restart of Studio. Upon restart, all PDF activities are no longer found anywhere in the activities pane.
Studio/Robot/Orchestrator Version: 2018.1.2
able behavior:Last stable version: 184.108.40.206
OS Version: Windows 7
We are working with a project that involves reading hundreds of thousands of PDFs for text extraction. Since this newest update will break workflows using previous versions due to the new engine, we would like to use the newest activity so we won’t have to re-configure at some point in the future
It’s very possible. Reverting to 220.127.116.11 works fine for me. It seems like a massive oversight by UiPath to not even mention this in the release notes. It shouldnt even be available to those with incompatible versions if that’s the case
@loginerror I have attached pictures of a sample XAML with a read pdf activity. It is working as expected with pdf activity pack 18.104.22.168. Once upgrading to 22.214.171.124 the activites disappear within studio and an error is shown that states "Could not find type ‘ReadPDFText’ in namespace ‘http://schemas.uipath.com/workflow/activities’. Row 57, Column 6
After the uipath auto updated, I ran a previous script i did some months back. That’s when the error came. Atfirst the PDF reader in the new package was reading alot. Then the PDF package was missing and I add it to the beta activity feed. Then I am currently using a version lower.
