  1. Todd! So ready to fall in love with this! But its not working for me.
    I’ve installed it into VS Code. I have a flow xml file. I run the Command Pallette – nothing happens. What am I missing?

    1. Hey me again – tried with a different flow and it was fine. This is the error I was getting on the one that failed… “Cannot read properties of undefined (reading ‘targetReference’)”

      Just in case you wanted to know.
      cheers – this thing is cool!
