No click in Macro possible

I’m trying to record a macro on the following website

I appears that I’m not able to click in the search area (marked in yellow)

when recording a macro.

Hi @alextaxanalysts,

I tried clicking in the search area and I was able to record the macro.
Please find attached the macro steps json file which you can try to import & modify as appropriate.

Surya, Thanks so much but I don’t get it imported. If I download the file to my computer and then try to import it, it doesn’t work. If I open it and copy the following data

{“macros”:[{“meta”:{“url”:“"},“name”:“test1”,“spec”:{},“steps”:[[“wait_doc”,{“frame”:0}],[“scroll”,[“selector”,{“meta”:{},“type”:“css”,“value”:“html”}],0,1017,{“frame”:0}],[“click”,[“selector”,{“meta”:{},“type”:“css”,“value”:“.ng-isolate-scope”}],{“x”:731.5,“y”:212.453125},{“frame”:1}],[“type”,[“selector”,{“meta”:{},“type”:“css”,“value”:“.ng-isolate-scope”}],"sample input”,{“frame”:1}],[“click”,[“selector”,{“meta”:{},“type”:“css”,“value”:“.btn”}],{“x”:564.578125,“y”:199.03125},{“frame”:1}]],“version”:2}]}

it creates an error message (see attached).

Hi @alextaxanalysts

I guess you are trying to import this as a monitor and hence its throwing the error.
You need to import the macro in your macros section via the following steps:

  1. Go to macros, as shown in the documentation page: Macro: Record and Replay Automated Actions – Distill
  2. Click on ‘Import Macro’ button & it should ask you for the json file (which you have already downloaded).

Please let us know, if you still face any challegnes.


If I click on import, it gives the following error message

“Failed to parse data invalid JSON” (see attached)

In other words, it doesn’t ask me for the file at all.

Hi @alextaxanalysts

I believe you are trying to 'import a monitor’ and not ‘import a macro’.
Below are a few screenshots that can help:

  1. Click on Macros as shown in the drop-down below.

  2. Click on ‘Import Macro’, as shown in the screenshot below:

This should ask you to upload the file.
Hope that helps.


I have another website

which does not let me fill in text while I want to record a macro. Do you have a solution for this one as well?


Hi @alextaxanalysts

I am able to record a macro (see screenshot below):

Once you import the macro & you can edit the text as shown in screenshot below:

Hope this helps!
