x/y not working anymore?

Post by questions » Fri Mar 24, 2017 10:44 pm

I just tried to record a macro using the x/y record option and it recorded tags and html code instead of the x/y position... can anyone else confirm this?

I ran into the same problem today while trying to fix a script for someone.

Then I downgraded to iMacros 8.9.7 and it worked again :)

sure I can downgrade to rocks and sticks too, but what's the official answer to why XY isn't working? And why is it available as a recording option if it doesn't work?

Well, 'Official" Answer is that this Thread will eventually get deleted (or merged with your (original) Duplicate) as I reported it 2 months ago to get deleted, ah-ah...!:
Report reason: Other

Duplicate...!
User from 2008 still behaving like a Newbie with Duplicates, never follows up on his previous Threads, grrr...!!!
But hum, looks like the Forum Admin doesn't check the Forum very often, ah-ah...

But hum, even your "original" was a Duplicate-Duplicate-Duplicate..., due to not searching the Forum... :roll: and not being able to read the Release Notes... :idea:
=> What more of an "official answer" do you expect if the "official answer" is simply documented in the Release Notes...!? :roll:

(Quite impressed by the Follow-up on this current Thread, I have to admit... :D , hum even if it's only 2 months later, oops...! :shock: )
Mini-Guess: Next Reply/Follow-up, if any, will come in Octb/Novb 2017...!? :lol:

I just made an account to say this was the first link in my search results. Instead of finding a helpful answer, I found a 50 year old man behaving like a child which seems to be a reoccurring theme. Here for his actual answer.

Quite impressed by the helpful moderation on this current thread, I have to admit... A little advice, next time just link your previous answer and then lock the thread. It is less effort for you and much more helpful for everyone else.

Also, IYGIATBH, stop giving people puzzles to follow in order to understand what you are saying. I really don't get it, you aren't even saving time because your explanation is longer than your signature. It honestly just seems like some kind of incredibly petty power play rather than a time/effort saver.

"CIM...! :mrgreen: (Always mention your FCI when you open a Thread, read my Sig, many Commands are not implemented for all Browsers/Versions...)"

"What version operating system, web browser, and imacro are you using?"

Much shorter and easier to understand without making someone reference a freaking glossary. That guy might not have even known sig meant signature. Moral of the story stop UWANU, see my sig.

(Sorry but I disapproved your Duplicate in the original Thread to avoid polluting it, this one is supposed to get deleted completely if one day the Forum Admin will take the time to review the Delete Reports, so you/we can have some Fun in this one, ah-ah...! :oops: )
