New Features and Improvements

The Computer Vision v2.0.0 activities pack brings many upgrades to the table, completely revamping the old activities and replacing them with new ones that have the ability to generate and use a Descriptor, which contains the screen coordinates of the elements that are used in the automation. Please note that upgrading to the new version does not cause a breaking change in your already existing workflows, as the old activities still exist in the new version of the pack, but are no longer browsable. The new activities are:

The Computer Vision Indicate On Screen wizard has been updated to better fit your automation needs.

An auto-anchor is now also chosen for Text Areas and Targets that act as a reference for Text Areas.
