For years and years UiPath is having a problem with Type Into.
Everytime I edit the value, it adds “%” sign in front.
Only solution how to get rid of it is to copy the activity and paste.
It is such a small but annoying thing.
Thank you for solving this bug!
Confirmed. I just did some testing and saw the same thing. I’ve used Type Into a ton in the last year and never saw this issue, so I think it’s because you’re trying to code CTRL and other command keys, rather than using Send Hotkey.
I think it appears when there are more than two keys [k(…)]. And when I edit it, adding for example enter to the end.
I don’t know why, but I always rather use TypeInto with the keys rather than Send Hotkey, somehow it was always more reliable and also if I use special keys as CTRL+H and so, I can set up DelayBetweenKeys so it can be performed slower for slow systems.
btw - [d(ctrl)]h[u(ctrl)] is a regular way how to work with special keys in TypeInto, but not much documented. I love it though, it gives me power to know exactly what is pressed and typed
I’ve registered it as a bug in our bug tracker so that our team can have a look.
I’ll update this topic when more is known.
It looks like our product manager for Studio has already checked it out
There might often be quite some time for some features to reach Studio due to our extensive list of ideas, but I fully trust the Studio team to pick them and introduce them in the most optimal order
