Cannot move the recorder bar in 8.3

Post by Tomsk666 » Tue Oct 16, 2018 4:18 pm

Not sure whether this is a bug or by design, but in 8.3 when you go into record mode, the recorder bar appears as usual, however, unlike previous versions, it is not floating and there is no way as far as I can see to move it from the bottom corner of the desktop. Trouble is it is right on top of part of the application I need to record against and cannot get to it.
Is there a way to make it floating again?

Hello Tomsk666,

Thank you for your post.
We are already aware of this issue and our developers already fixed it.
Within our next release, the recorder window will be movable again.

In the meantime, I would suggest using Ranorex Spy in order to track the element hidden behind the recorder window.

As soon as the next Ranorex version is available, you will find details about it in our release notes.
Thank you for your patience.
