I tried your feedback. When I press F2 on my keyboard I am able to change the file name. I reinstalled the community edition of UiPath version 2019.6.0 but that didn’t resolve the issue as I am unable to hit F2 key on keyboard to pause recording or hit ESC on keyboard to end the recording.
I also tried the on screen keyboard and tried to hit the ESC and F2 key but no luck got the same behavior on the on screen keyboard as I get on the normal keyboard.
I believe it is a UiPath issue but I cannot seem to install any other version other than 2019.6.0 since that is the free community version available on trial for free.
Any suggestions on how to resolve this issue would be greatly appreciated.
I tried option #1 hitting the F3 key it didn’t work as it didn’t allow me to select a region while recording.
I tried option #2 by right clicking and running UiPath studio as an administrator and that didn’t seem to resolve the issue. Still unable to pause the recording by hitting F2 or cancel the recording by clicking on ESC key on keyboard.
If you like I can perhaps share my screen with you via Skype or Gchat and you can see my issue live. Hope that can help resolve the issue. Let me know if that works for you.
I had once similar problem with other application. The problem was caused by other application (running in background) which took over some keys and shortcuts functionality. Please try to switch off everything you can on computer by going to Task Manager and close applications from User tab.
If this as well as re-installation is not helping then please also try to update .Net to newest version and check out if switching Studio to Beta channel will solve your problem.
It’s very weird issue. It looks like it’s only happening to you as I don’t see anyone with same problem. I think still it might be a problem locally with your Computer/OS. I know it’s easy to say but are you able to try fresh OS installation?
This is really interesting and strange as well – did pressing F5 key works as that would execute the process… if that does not work either then non of the function or special keys work…
Well I hope it’s late already so why can’t we try to uninstall and reinstall the dot net framework that’s possible and easy right… may be version is not compatible enough with new community edition Try to install the latest version of dot net and reinstall the uipath once, hope that should work
