Is there a way of going backwards a step using the debugger?

I suspect this is simply an unreasonable thing to wish but is there a way to go backwards through the debugger? You know, for when the cat knocks your coffee all over your desk just as you’re approaching the step you really need to see and you have to start again? That would be really handy.

Hey, well unfortunately the answer is no, you can’t reverse and go back to a previous action. Its a case of having to start the process again.

You can however use the checkbox within an event OR a workflow action specific, to ‘Add a breakpoint in debug mode’. It’s then quite useful for running in debug mode, but not having to use ‘Step by Step’ initially.

Example event-based:

p.s. we’ve all been there :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:


Thank you so much. I’ve never looked into Break Points so this is going to be very useful.

This morning’s effort was my bad and, with hindsight, simply closing the door may have been a helpful preventative solution for me!

Great, glad that helped @joefarrowsmith
Yeah a useful feature, just try not to forget to switch them off once you’ve finished your debugging, its an easy thing to fall into accidentally :slightly_smiling_face:

Haha yeah better luck next time.
