UI Element Recognition not working with Selector InnerText

Hi All,


When using the 'Get details of element on web page' on Power Automate Desktop I find that if I modify UI element in a way that I find more stable (e.g. relying on text rather than pure structure), it is unable to pick up the element.


Is this a bug or do I misunderstand how it works?

See screenshots attached.


Thank you for the help in advance,



Browser is a Chrome instance - all other actions are working when interacting with it.

The action:




There are two UI elements created - the first one is working, the second is not.

The first approach is checking if the attribute "Exists" is present on the "a" element, while the second is checking for an attribute "Exists" on the "InnerText" attribute. I think the problem is "InnerText" is itself an attribute and wouldn't have an attribute "Exists" associated.
