I have a question, when I 'download data' (type=html) and save as CSV the data gets messed up, but when I copy (from extension copy option) and paste to excel the data proper in each cell, but the problem is copying to clipboard takes lot of time, download is fast but the data messes up. I also tried downloading to .txt and copying to excel but that doesnt help either. Is there a way I can 'download data' in a clean format or any workaround.

- (2020-06-02, v:1.4.1) Faiz Sheikh: Selecting CSS or XPATH element is not working anymore. Plus one quick question
Selecting CSS or XPATH element is not working anymore. But If I add manually then its working. Question: Can I change the text delimiter of my choice, can i change the delimiter to pipe "|" instead of a forward slash "/".

I downloaded the extension after seeing it mentioned on one of your blog post. At the time it worked without issue. I tried it today, and it doesn't allow me to select with xpath or css. I am on Version 81.0.4044.138 (Official Build) (64-bit).
