Improvements

Studio Pro

  1. Various debug mode UX/UI improvements:

  3. If there are breakpoints, the transparent debug button appears. This button triggers the debug mode.
  4. The ‘Debug’ menu option has been separated from the ‘Run’ tab.
  5. Added an option to add breakpoints ‘on the fly’ both in normal and debug modes. It is now possible to add breakpoints to next steps while the workflow is being executed. It can be done with normal and debug mode scenarios. In the case of the normal mode, the workflow will be switched to debug mode automatically once it reaches the step where the breakpoint was added.
  6. Added an option not to minimize Studio Pro after launching a bot in debug mode. Now it is possible to disable auto minimizing in debug mode.
  7. Better activities search algorithm. The search algorithm has been improved. It helps to minimize the probability of irrelevant results when searching for specific activities. Besides, actually relevant results will be shown more often.
  8. Improved ‘Extract text’ activity functionality. Possible corner cases when using after and before parameters have been taken into consideration and worked through.
  9. Notify the user when there is not enough RAM . Studio now warns that the RAM is running out when there is less than 10% of its space left.
  10. Studio Pro is added to firewall exceptions when installing. Now Studio Pro is automatically added to the exceptions list during installation.
  11. Reworked loader design. Visual changes have been introduced to loader windows.
  12. Added support for the XML format in request’s body and response when working with the ‘HTTP Request’ activity. If the content-type is application/xml or text/xml , the activity will automatically parse the request body, provided as a string, to xml . The return result will be automatically converted to json .
