you can use fill() or type() on a locator

fill doesnt work for me

which exception it throws?

waiting for getByTestId('free-text') locator resolved to <div data-testid="free-text" class="MuiFormControl-ro…>…</div> elementHandle.fill("free-text") waiting for element to be visible, enabled and editable Element is not an <input>, <textarea> or [contenteditable] element

can you try with type() once?

thank you!

it helped!

there is away to paste in one time without waiting for the long text to be wrriten?

@tall0763: yup. that is the fill() you are talking about!
