[Known Issues]
  • Code from previous OpenBots versions is currently incompatible with v1.0.4 due to major namespace changes. This can be corrected with a bit of elbow grease, but users with large projects should ideally wait until a conversion patch is published.
  • Recorder selectors for the Google Home Page do not align to the opened browser version of google. Other websites should be utilized for recording while we investigate this.
  • Currently setting a breakpoint on commands is a bit clunky.
  • Lack of hotkey support for command interactions and the Project Tool Strip
  • Lack of a clear search button for the Command Search Box
  • Debug Mode does not currently display the contents of Dictionary variables
  • Variables created during command execution are not visualized in the Variable Manager/Helper
  • Errors in user scripts are currently only known during execution. Further validation could be provided to end users during command creation.
  • Inability to move or rename Main.json and Project .config file.
  • User is unable to select the default “My Scripts” folder location.
  • Users cannot add Script files from other Projects, however this can be worked around by using “Import File” under “File Actions”.
