Question

Issues with Universal Recorder and Capture actions. I am undergoing some bot developer courses which require the use of the Universal Recorder and capture actions. However, upon using the universal recorder i will wait for the text.


or the box to glow red and then click to capture it. In theory it should capture what just glowed read however when the capture action appears in my automation anywhere community edition it has captured some completely random part of the page. Can anyone explain why this is and potentially help me resolve this issue? See image below for reference. I selected the email box and it glowed red so it should have captured that but instead it's captured some other part of the screen.invoicely

I believe you're enabled and using the Anchor to capture the web pages

 

Please use the Main

Hello @Aaron Saunders​, Reported issue can be observed in a case when machine zoom or scaling level is not set to 100%

 

Go to browser settings and verify the zoom percentage, which should be set to 100%.

Also, make sure the text size is set to 100% (can be checked by navigating to: Control Panel\All Control Panel Items\Display).

Try setting default Screen resolution and Size of text, apps and other items and check if it resolves issue.
