Issue with Edit Element

Due to some maintenance on the page under test one of the fields got a different ID.
Not big deal, I just want to change the selector used and I will be fine.
However…
This seems to be more difficult than I had anticipated.
Under elements I find the element I need and I click edit.


Then I change the value of the used css selector. But the save button is greyed out.

Ok, I cancel and try again. I edit the Element and I add a new CSS Selector.
I move the selector to the top place and remove the old selector.
The save button is still greyed out.
Then I go to my Tests and find the step where I check on the field.
There I click to edit the element.
Now it is as if I have to create a new element.

That is possible, I add a css selector and now have to fill in a name.
As soon as I get out of the name field, in red there is a warning.
This element name already exist. Please choose a different name.

It is a little strange, but possible. so I choose a different name.
Same message.
ok, now I just randomly slap key on my keyboard.
The element name already exists.
Now I use the unix epoch timestamp

And the message does not want to change.
This element name already exist. Please choose a different name.

Now how can I update the selector of an existing element of create a new element, when I cannot save anything?

Hi @matthijs.risselada ,

There is some maintenance work going on, we are facing this kind of issues from last few days. Because of this we cant edit the Elements & we cant record the test scripts.

We have already reported the same to them.
