During execution, the progress box shown at the right lower corner gives information about the current automation state. Press the <Pause> key to stop execution. Press <SHIFT> + <PAUSE> to skip delays and timeouts during replaying.

If the option 'Generate replay reports' is set to true, a report is shown after replay has finished. By default, each action item logs one message to the report.

Within Ranorex Studio, the report is shown as a new file view whereas the standalone Recorder opens the report viewer to show the result. Learn more about how to use Ranorex reporting in Lesson 8: Reporting. As shown in the picture above, each log entry allows one to quickly jump to the source action item. This is helpful in quickly debugging single actions in case of an error. Within the Recorder's actions table, you can then fix a step causing an error and quickly re-run single or selected steps using the context menu. Additionally, you can 'play to' and 'play from' the selected item
