Problem with record line breaks


With the record interface in katalon studio, i click right on a text with lines breaks and choose “verify element text”.

Line 1 - Hello
Line 2 - World

When i replay the recorded scenario, the actual text and the record text don’t match (cause of line breaks).

Could you optimize the record?
Thanks a lot,

Hi Chivet,

The Line 1 and 2 should be split by a “,”. Could you attach an actual video on usecase to clarify the request (how the text is not matching, is the 2 lines belong in 1 elements)? That would really help.



Here is an exemple.

I recorded this text (cf. capture) and when i replay the test, it doesn’t work.

Hope this help.

Hi @chivet,

I’ve tried to record the description of this post and it works fine like below image:

From your example, I have an assumption that you’ve chosen an element including 2 different elements. Could you please provide us its HTML (you could change the value inside the elements if it’s credential)?

Thank you for your answer.

Here is the HTML example:

    <span>ST FTEST</span>

Best regards.

Hi @chivet,

I’ve created an HTML file with the example, but the result contains all texts in one line like this: “OPTEST ST FTEST”.
In my opinion, although the “span” tag nests in “p” tag, they are 2 different elements and we should verify them individually.

Thank you for your answer.

The problem is that I can’t register “OP TEST” without register “ST FTEST” ; so I can’t verify the string “OP TEST”.
Moreover, with an IDE register, it is not very practical to have to know the source code to make a register (by example, it is not a competence of our test jobs).

Thank you by advance for your solution.

Best regards,
