Learn about the Editor Experience

Editor Connection Indicator

When you are ready to begin building your WalkMe solutions, it is important to make sure that the Editor is connected to your browser, this enables you to capture elements on the screen successfully and use them in your build.


Use the WalkMe Connection Indicator to make sure that you are connected at all times. If the Indicator is green, you are connected:


If the indicator is red, you are not connected:

If you are not able to connect, it is recommended to double-check your configurations and restart. If you are still experiencing problems, contact our Support team.

Accessing the Editor Menu

You can access the Editor menu by clicking on the menu icon in the top left of the Editor.

In the menu you can access many of the WalkMe apps that are available:

Refreshing the Editor Application

To refresh the Editor, select “Refresh Editor” in the Editor menu.  This can be helpful for troubleshooting if an issue in the Editor is encountered. Refreshing reloads the Editor site inside the electron app just like refreshing a site in the browser (it’s not a hard refresh though so it doesn’t clear the Editor’s cache):

Resize the Editor Application

Editor maximum width size can be customized to the minimum of 1500px, in order to improve the experience when working on wide screens.

Please note:

Available on Editor version 4.11.5 and above.

  • Click on the Settings tab in the Editor:

  • Select the User Preferences tab

  • Change from Full Screen to Max width and enter the desired width size of the Editor (Minimum of 1500px)

  • Click Save
  • Refresh the Editor
