Hover Action Overview
Hover Actions are most often required when dropdown menus do not activate with a left-click. The Architect needs to hover over a specific element before clicking on a second element. If the second element only becomes visible on the screen after hovering, the Architect cannot click it until it is visible. Using page coordinates is not an accurate way to achieve this, which is why Hover Actions are preferred.
