Does x/y recording work in the chrome version? I just tried to run a macro I recorded a few months ago (not using x/y but now I might try x/y) and it's not working at all in chrome. Was there a big change recently?

It seems, no. At the same time the wiki for Firefox says
CLICK (X/Y) record mode is now deprecated, use EVENT mode instead.

Therefore you can use
Code: Select all
EVENT TYPE=CLICK SELECTOR="someSelectorHere" POINT="(12,345)"
instead of
Code: Select all
CLICK X=12 Y=345

As far as I know, the wildcard * selector won't work for Chrome. However X/Y clicks are not perfect in Firefox either.

Oh..., good, sbd replied in one of your 2 Duplicates, the other one can now be reported to get it deleted... (Or you could delete it yourself as long as nobody replies in it...) I can understand this Current Thread asking specifically about CR but the duplicate was in the FF Sub-Forum, with no mention at all of FCI... :roll:
=> Probable FCI: iMacros for CR v8.4.4, CR54/56...?, OS...?

Sorry @OP, using the Forum since 2008, being one of the oldest Forum Users but still using it a bit like a Newbie, with Duplicates, FCI never mentioned, and most of your previous Threads are still waiting for some Follow-up from you I can see from a quick Check, while we would expect you'd be a bit of a "Role Model" and answering most Threads I guess... :shock:
=> A bit "depressing", sorry...! But I had already said it in some previous Thread(s) of yours 1 or 2 years ago, didn't change a thing... :roll:

Got lucky you got some Answer... But hum, @iimfun's Answer is a bit incomplete, ah-ah...!, I've once posted a more complete Answer, you can search the Forum... And it's not difficult to test by yourself anyway... :idea:
Hum, except that i didn't know about the Wildcard not working on CR, good to know for "Portability" of Scripts between different Browsers... But I never use CR, ah-ah...! The only "interesting" Feature in CR that is not available for FF is the 'Selector' Functionality for the 'TAG' Command as well...
- (F)CIM = (Full) Config Info Missing: iMacros + Browser + OS with all 3 Versions...
- I usually don't even read the Question if that (required) Info is not mentioned...
- Script & URL usually help a lot for a more "educated" Help...
