While you are working in the element explorer, it is possible to switch to an arbitrary element in the DOM hierarchy. This may be necessary in occasions where you realize that you started off with a wrong element and want to switch to a different element. In other instances, depending on the closeness of various elements in the hierarchy, it may be challenging to hover on the exact element you need. In such a case, start off with one of the elements in the region and select to add to repository.
Once in the element explorer, click required node in the left side DOM tree to show its attributes. On the top right corner of the attributes section, click on the icon to switch to the current node as the element.
