Please help to send me Katalon Studio logs in this case
There are no logs as we are not executing test cases, we are trying to record steps/ capture objects for a new test case. After checking I’m also having issues with the “Record Web” function, not just the “Spy Web” function. The “Record Web” function doesn’t actually record the actions the user performs on a web page instead it only records OpenBrowser and CloseBrowser items.
Hi, I’m experiencing the same problem after downloading the latest version, 5.6.0, the Spy Web function is not working. It launches successfully, however there is no red border that appears when hovering over web objects and when trying to capture an object using “Alt + `” nothing happens. I then used version 5.3.1 to see if the issue persists, but it’s working on this version.
I have the same problem, I am using 5.6 version, Spy web and record web functions don’t work, there is no red border appears when trying to capture objects, and the “Record Web” function doesn’t actually record the actions the user performs on a web page instead it only records OpenBrowser and CloseBrowser items.
As far as I see, Alt+` as Spy Web Hot Key never works for those who are using NON-US keyboard. Why? I have described my thought about this problem in the following post — it depends on Keyboard type you are using:
I regret that so many people who are new to Katalon Studio and who are using NON-US Keyboard get stuck (as I did previously) bacuase Alt+` does not work.
For me, do not run Katalon in admin mode (which means do not install in Program Files) also the green flash is verrrry slow. Not the animation the time to green flash. Also it does not work 100% of the time.
Hi all… I changed the Hotkeys but selecting everything and then clicking on ‘Alt+a’ on the keyboard together and it changed the hotkey. And now able to capture objects in Chrome.
Thank you @kazurayam for the solution
Thank you @Ken for posting this question.
Been looking for solutions since ages
Hi guys, I’ve had to often restart Katalon to get Object Spy to work in any version. Of note though, in 5.8.6, I cannot save objects to the current folder, copy and replace does not work, I get a big red X. I’ve reported this before but have not had any feedback. I have been saving them to a ‘different’ folder then have to rename (if I’d wanted a copy) and drag them into the default page folder. THIS feature always worked in the past. It’s really frustrating to not be able to copy or replace an object in the default page folder now!
I feel very stupid, but I realised that it stopped working because I clicked away from the browser window and/or change the language to Russian. Check the language you are typing in if you often switch between two, and simply click on title bar on the browser window you are spying on to make it an active window. Worked for me.
Thanks dears, I changed the Object Spy hotkey and it is working now.
you can change it from Window–> Katalon Studio Preferences–> Object Spy.
Click on Capture Object and press on Alt+a (or any combination you want)
